This is a very stylised comic book about epilepsy and it works very well. The coloured pages are jarring but that's the intent, while reading about Isaac's ongoing battle with his disease and trying to survive while going to school. It's really well done, and should be read far and wide.

A fantastic look into the struggles of dealing with an illness that is tough to diagnose/treat. Finding medications that work and doctors that listen can be a struggle for people with these types of illness. A great look into the struggle that these kinds of issues present to someone and their personal life. At first the art felt quite abrasive (yellow pages), but I came to realize this is likely a conscious choice to impart the feeling of discomfort the character is feeling on to the reader.
