Killing and Dying is about a fathers struggles to be supportive: it centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy.

Optic Nerve 14 will appear on the twentieth anniversary of Tomines beloved comic book series, in whose pages the landmark graphic novel Shortcomings was first published. Each story in Optic Nerve 14 reveals new dimensions to Tomines unique visual sensibility and complex, character-driven stories. 40 pages, full color. Cover price $3.95.
