Originally a web comic, Mom’s Cancer documents the subtile to profound effects cancer can have -not only for the afflicted- but for the family, as well. Brian Fies effectively conveys, through black and white illustrations, the metamorphosis of his mom (before and after chemo). Other cancer comics I would recommend include: “Cancer Made me a Shallower Person”, by Miriam Engelberg and “Our Cancer Year”, by Harvey Pekar.

Realistic and oddly optimistic. A great story that makes it easy to connect with the characters.
