“Don Campbell, from Barrie, Ont., had Seguin sign a photocopy of his two young sons’ birth certificates, where their middle names – one Boston, the other Bruin – caught the player’s eye.”— James Mirtle, Globe & Mail. (via bosstownsports)
I’ve been reading this one page by page as it goes up, but just this morning did a reread from the beginning, and I’m even more impressed than before. I’ve never had an ED, but can vouch that the depiction of body dysmorphia is done frighteningly well here - shape and size changing from panel to panel until the reader is just as unsure as the narrator. (Interesting that the constant twisting makes it so much more honest than if it stayed static…)
What really grabs me, though, is the fox, hawk, and ram - the beautiful and accurate personifications of those destructive inner voices.
(Note: comic also contains brief depictions of self-harm, jsyk)
this was really hard to read, but like bigbigtruck said before me, depicts ed / body dysmorphia astonishingly well. it puts a lot of things into perspective if you have had / do have problems with your weight.
