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:

That's all and thank you, again, for the story.

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!

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.

Looking for natural medicine to schizophrenia without any side effect Dr. Williams is the best because it has no side effect, After my son being diagnosed of schizophrenia in 2010, I have used numerous medicine for him with no improvement. He spent most of the summer in the hospital. I remember him feeling abandoned and terrified of the many injection needles that seemed necessary to keep him calm. All Western Medicine used in the past did not have any noticeable difference,one day as i was going through the internet i came across so many people with different disease testifying about dr williams herbal remedies,i ordered for it on line,that's when he started using dr williams Herbal Medicine,and now is completely cured from schizophrenia , his medicine is a permanent cure to schizophrenia, for more info contact (drwilliams098765@gmail.com for advice and for his product
