--Paul Gravett, author of Comics Art and editor of 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die
"Absorbing and accessible. . . . The authors explain themselves in both words and pictures (five sketch themselves as standard-issue professionals, and one as a small, cheerful chicken). They outline what drew them to graphic medicine and append excerpts from favorite works."
--Abigail Zuger, M.D., New York Times
"Graphic Medicine Manifesto draws its strength from the way the individual voices coalesce to confirm not only the ability of comics to unravel medical culture and the pedagogical possibilities of graphic medicine but the transformative and community-building competence of graphic pathographies. In short, Graphic Medicine Manifesto is an essential read for scholars in comics studies, cultural studies, medical humanities, bicultural studies and visual studies, and to any reader who values the intersection of literature and medicine."
--Sathyaraj Venkatesan, Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics
"Published in 2015, this book was one of the very first on graphic medicine. It continues to provide fundamental information for getting started with graphic medicine and building an appreciation for comic scholarship in medicine."
--Janice Phillips, Doody's Review Service
