“Psychographics: Graphic Memoirs and Psychiatric Disability”
Elizabeth Donaldson juxtaposes the linkage of psychosis and violence in the superhero comics tradition with representations of mental illness in contemporary graphic memoirs. This new tradition of illness memoirs in comics helps to make a maligned disability experience (psychosis) publicly legible in innovative and potentially liberating ways.
