Shortcomings coverSpotted this in Foyles yesterday – the last few Optic Nerve editions (the ones about Ben Tanaka) collected into a hardback published by Faber in the UK, and also on Amazon.

I’ve been following this series since I ran across a copy of Tomine’s Sleepwalk and other stories a few years back and proceeded to buy pretty much everything of his that I could find. It’s quite remarkable and, assuming nothing drastic has happened to the content in the translation from series to book (I had a flick through, and it appears to be complete), I’d thoroughly recommend it.

More info at Drawn and Quarterly, who also have a web shop (and who are also publishing the very different abut also quite wonderful Moomin archive)
