‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights news about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary. So without further ado…
Matthew’s Pick of the Week…
This week I want to point you to a new feature of the graphic medicine website: spotlights! We get a dozen or more messages a week about exciting projects, new books, inquiries to learn more – and there are just 4 of us – so this is a new way for us to help share information about the work of everyone in the graphic medicine realm who reaches out to us!
This week, we have two spotlights. First, Emily Steinberg, MFA, shares with us a piece Mid-Century Hipster, a comic all about her hip replacement surgery experience. Then there’s Anita White, who shares with us Emotional Medical Drawings, Done in the Moment, Over Time, and Through the End – an emotional journey documenting life and loss.
I hope you’ll check out both of these powerful posts and let the creators know how their work impacts you.
Do you have something you’d like to share with the graphic medicine community? Got a question? Have an idea? Contact us!

This has been a point of discussion in the past – how can we make courses about comics accessible to all? Are comics still comics if they aren’t visual?
