One Sclerosis: An M.S. Story by Chris Kill
Chris Kill's chronicle of his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis and the difficult months that followed is sad, funny, and uplifting without being sentimental or unrealistic. The artist-musician's comics illustrate his struggle to come to terms with a disabling disease while juggling a job, a band, and a new relationship. Kill doesn't sugar-coat the challenges he faces—America isn't so great for people without health insurance, and his frequent bouts of depression are understandable—but his quiet perseverance leaves readers with a sense of hope.
