‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights relevant articles (and tweets) about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary, with credit given to those who flagged them up where possible. So without further ado…
I am stepping in again for Matthew. Congratulations again on the nuptials, Matthew! – Alice Jaggers
Alice’s Pick of the Week…
This week I am using this space to call out Side Defects. There is a Kickstarter for this book that I am pretty excited about. It is “a book examining the lighter side of chronic illness through comic illustrations of the ridiculous side effects of my medicines.” If you have the resources, you should help out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/leachteach/side-defects?ref=736451&token=5622eef2
