Longtime collaborators in Graphic Medicine, Alex Thomas and Gary Ashwal have had their asthma education comic, Iggy and The Inhalers, printed. Graphic Medicine is eagerly awaiting a copy. In the mean time, the collaborative duo have put the whole thing online here.
The website teaches kids with asthma about asthma symptoms, asthma treatment, and asthma medications using comics, videos, and free downloads.
Considering he is a board-certified pediatric allergist, and has spent a good deal of his adult life treating sick children, Alex Thomas, MD is a ridiculously good draughtsman. I’m jealous of his drawing skills. Gary and Alex work together under the name of Booster Shot Comics to produce original and entertaining work that will great appeal to children (and parents).
