We Got Reviews: Diabetes Is After Your D***


I work in the medical field, so I’m going to say the points that cartoonist Cathy Leamy probably won’t hear otherwise. I don’t think any medical organization would ever put this out willingly, title change or not. But that’s a shame.

Leamy actually works in the medical field, so she’s obviously coming at this educational comic knowing that educational brochures need more straightforward language and a breath of life. Whereas most education I work with in describing diabetes deal with literal examples (we have one where we take a hypothetical glass of water, an egg, a spoonful of sugar and I’ve already lost you), Leamy is able to use metaphor using visuals take it to a logical and humorous conclusion.
