Highly recommended!


In Xiang Yata's Optometry, a woman’s visit to the optometrist catapults her through a multi-medium journey in this kaleidoscopic, experimental full-color comic.

"With a remarkable depth of style, Xiang Yata collapses the distinction between the observer and the observed, creating an imaginative world of infinite possibility. Optometry is a celebration of visual storytelling, reminding the reader that when you lose your form all possible forms reveal themselves." —Jesse Jacobs, author of Honeymoon Safari

"Ocularly rich, minimal, and hypnotic, Xiang Yata’s Optometry has comic symmetry of verdant beauty and field of perspective and depth. It’s super scrollable and page-turnable. It is a hyper magnetic optical world that make you feel seen in unexpected and viridescent ways. What a lush creature, this book!" — Vi Khi Nao, author of Fish in Exile

“A spiritual journey of enlightenment, written without words. A glimpse through other dimensions of universe, presented by colors and shapes. An unconscious experience triggered by optometry, and back to real world like waking up from a dream. The beauty of chaos can't be expressed by words. Will be a little pity if anyone missed the wonderful world inside this book." — Wang XX, cartoonist behind Seal Comics & Think I’ve Still Got It!
