As an instructor at The Center for Cartoon Studies since its founding in 2005, long-time cartoonist/writer/editor/publisher Stephen R. Bissette has been privileged to witness (and, at times, participate in) the creative process of various cartoonists as they created work that focused on their own personal health issues and histories. Bissette offers an illustrated overview of the path, perils, and potential inherent in the creation of such intensely intimate and introspective works.

I am a cultural anthropologist working in a school of medicine. I have a keen interest in comics about cancer and inequality. I love thinking about how to transform ethnographic narratives into comic form, and to increase the number of voices who are willing to share their experiences as a graphic narrative
