Sleepwalk by Adrian Tomine

SleepwalkOriginally published in 1998, Sleepwalk and Other Stories collects the sixteen earliest stories from the Optic Nerve comic series. Tomine won a Harvey Award for Best New Talent for this book.

These are stories of people trying to move on in their lives, trying to connect with each other, and more often than not missing, and when they miss they end up somewhere they hadn’t intended, and the focus of their attention often is misplaced.

Sleepwalk  is just one of several volumes that collect these short stories, first of all self-published and then continued by the always impressive Drawn and Quarterly.
