This is amazing Darryl! I literally could not stop reading it, the combination of stark images and the conversational tone is perfect. My mom is schizophrenic and I will turn off the TV whenever someone uses the word schizophrenic to mean multiple personality disorder. It drives me crazy.

I take that as a great compliment from an artist as good as you, Eric. Cheers!

great, like always - and thanks for share with us art and knowledge, Darryl.

I enjoy both of them!

Good night!

My name is Cecilio, as you can see, and I'm from Spain. I've just read the comic and I've liked it very much, as you make this sickness nearer to us, without prejudices.

Would you be interested in a Spanish translation? It'd be fine to expand these ideas also in Hispano web.

Regards,

Cecilio.

Cecilio said...

Sorry; how could I contact to you if you like the idea? If you have any problem, just leave a comment. I suppose it'll be sent to my mail.

Ok, a guy from this site (http://www.meneame.net) has made a translation. You have it in:

I do not know or have ever been in contact with schizophrenia, but your "comic"/"graphic novel" skills are most amazing.

This is such a good idea- I never would have thought of using comic strips as a medium to educate others about mental illness.

I love your work. I just wish I could say I love all of it. If you really want to spread the good word about mental health, I suggest checking out the Icarus Project. You're on to a good start, but a lot of the ways that you address these issues can be offensive to some people (such as here where you say people with schizophrenia are better off drugged than not). Just an example. Hope you at least find the Icarus Project interesting!

Nicholai said...

Hi!
I do not suffer from schizophrenia, but I do have a mental illness, so I know how people sometimes take a step back when you tell them. It's great to see someone taking a different path to enlighten the general public. Thanks

Thank you for your comic. I have never posted a comment on any of the many articles I have read, videos that I have watched, or shows that I have seen. But your sensitive treatment of schizophrenia touched me deeply. My brother has suffered from schizophrenia for twenty+ years and I still have not figured out a way to help him live a safer and less painful life.

The law in the UK is quite weak in enforcing debts and debtors. In fact, there are 12 month payday loans websites that show how people who do not pay their debts, especially in the loan companies 12 month payday loans. At present there is a huge amount of variety of loan options when it comes to a small amount of 12 month loans money for a short time by borrowing. The good thing for the consumer is currently the choice of credit lines is growing, which means that consumers have more control over the 12 month loans no credit check money they are given. In the past, the options were limited. All you have to do is choose an amount you borrow to choose a small number of lenders and ensure that you are the person to be returned in a month as the lowest rate of interest when the amount due, select 'd like.

This individual acknowledges the advance genuinely and anticipates that the cash will be loans for people on benefits returned in time. Don't be affronted by an individual credit contract; be glad that somebody is eager to help in a crisis. Contingent upon the individual you are working, it could break the agreement implies an excursion to the common court. As you are paying your bills? In the event that your capacity to give a credit to pay unsecured loans question, then why take one? Borrowers have their own obligations in a fruitful business credit. On the off chance that you don't pay a relative, and take you to court, they are in charge of their monetary issues? It's the same with the instant loans online moneylenders. Credits unsecured loans advances online immediate is not the reason for your monetary issues if installment is not gotten.
