The Collected Diabetes Funnies

ByColin Upton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Diabetes Funnies began as a series of 8 page mini-comics by veteran small press and independent cartoonist Colin Upton shortly after he was diagnosed with diabetes in 2008. In these comics, Colin comes to terms with his condition by changing his life fundamentally, losing 85 pounds, going on and off drugs while dealing with his anger, despair, and issues of body image. Created in sharp bursts of creative energy, the humor of Diabetes Funnies is often dark (dark enough that after his first issues he was asked to come into his clinic so they could be sure he wasn’t suicidal). But those suffering from diabetes might appreciate a frank, outrageous and honest look at an all too common condition. _The Collected Diabetes Funnies_ collects all 13 Diabetes Funnies mini-comics into a single volume. Also included is an Epilogue not available in any other form.
