I didn't know he started Optic Nerve at 15. That's really cool, considering Insult to Injury was made when I was (I still am...) 15.

I had a totally unexpected erotic dream about Adrian Tomine the other night. Only I don't think the person in my dream actually looked anything like the real Adrian Tomine. But I haven't seen a picture, and I knew it was him.

They just released a book that collects all the first books, it's very good. I used to pick up this book from a record store, one of the few comics they carried.

he didn't look anything like i thought he would, i didn't even know he was Japanese, Tomine struck me as European for some reason

Did you miss that 90% of his characters are Japanese-Americans and half his stories are about Asian-American identity?
