Graphic Pathographies

A subgenre of graphic novels — illness narratives in graphic form. Graphic pathographies can be helpful to patients wanting to learn more about their illness and find a community of similarly affected people. Graphic pathographies also provide doctors with new insights into the personal experience of illness (especially regarding concerns patients might not mention in a clinical setting) and misconceptions about disease and treatment that could affect compliance and prognosis.

Dee Awesome list. I was looking for a list on 'Graphic Medicine' and I had not heard the term 'pathographies' before. Thanks for posting!
