This week's comic is inspired by (and is a tribute to) my artist friend Susie Gander!
Susie's a fellow cancer survivor who is putting her story in comic form. It's called Perrywinkle, and it's AMAZING! It's a semi-autobiographical account of the fear she experienced after she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, and how her alter-ego Perrywinkle showed up to face her disease head-on.
Well it goes without saying that Susie's insanely talented, and Perrywinkle is a superhero that is as badass as any superhero I've ever seen. I'm so happy that I'm not the only cancer comic artist out there to spread the message that getting cancer can reveal what you're really made of...and what you're made of will often surprise you.
Oh, and if you're wondering "Why a lizard?!", it is her bearded dragon, Eugene!
