I am pleased to announce that our newest comic, ‘”Living with Covid” While Clinically Vulnerable: A Real-Life Story’ is now openly available online.
This one-page comic was developed between January and March 2022 in response to the easing of mitigations around the COVID-19 pandemic. Like other recent comics I have worked on, this comic is also the result of autoethnographic, participatory narrative co-design methods.
Story by Dr Natalia Pérez (University of Southern California) and Dr Ernesto Priego (City, University of London). Illustrated by Francisco de la Mora.
The comic is shared as a preliminary research output which is one component in ongoing research; more formal outputs contextualising this work are in progress at the time of depositing this file, which is shared here in the spirit of open science and scholarship.
