Post-diagnosis comic


  1. Patrick!
    I look into your blog every now and again to see if you are bringing out anything new - and I was genuinely shocked to learn of this.
    Despite the illness your cartoons seem as magnificent as they ever have been. The natural flow in your work has always made me stinkingly envious, the mastery of facial expression, the simple but rich backgrounds and (especially) the way you use that ink wash.
    I rank 'Sometimes I Think About You at Night,' and 'Five Times,' as probably the most brilliantly off-beat and deftly handled works in the whole comic book canon.
    I had better lay off before I start sounding like an Irish priest at a funeral . . .
    What else can I say? We've never met but my thoughts will be with you and your family.

  2. Hi Patrick! We don't know each other (although I also grew up in Georgia), but Max Clotfelter just mentioned your work so I looked it up. I really like everything I see, other than the news of your dire circumstances. I am genuinely sorry to hear it, and wish you and your family the best. I don't know if you would find it helpful in any way, but I read a very affecting comic by a cartoonist with Parkinson's a few years ago called "My Degeneration". If it's at all therapeutic, I hope you'll continue autobio strips like this one. I'd imagine it's a good way to connect with people and not feel as alone in what you're going through. I published an anthology of true stories of addiction a couple years ago, and the response has been overwhelming in a good way. It seems a lot of people were able to relate, even if it wasn't their direct circumstances.
