Random House has issued a comic book Epileptic, which is garnering rave reviews in the world of the graphic novel. According to the website, Epileptic is:
An honest and horrifying portrait of the disease and of the pain and fear it sowed in the family, Epileptic is also a moving depiction of one family’s intricate history.
In much the same way Ray Robinson’s book Electricity brought us an insider’s look at epilepsy, Epileptic promises to be rich with similar honesty.
It’s exciting to see the art world open itself to real issues faced by real humans–issues like brain injuries and neurological syndromes. These are not stories about unreal supermodels and phony celebrities. These are stories about being human.
