Review

The comic book author takes us on her journey of coming to terms with her bipolar diagnosis, her search for the right combination of medicines to keep her “in balance,” and her struggle with the possibility of the illness affecting her art and how. It’s a fascinating story made even more interesting by the format. Having never been a comic book fan or ever having read a graphic novel, the format was definitely challenging. But once I slowed down to examine the artwork; I got into the rhythm of the book and enjoyed it for so many reasons--the artwork itself, the thought-provoking issues it raised and the author's indomitable spirit.
