HOSPITAL SUITE GN (MR)
The Hospital Suite is a landmark work by celebrated cartoonist and small-press legend John Porcellino, an autobiographical collection detailing his struggles with illness in the 1990s and 2000s. In 1997, John needed emergency surgery to remove a benign tumor from his small intestine. In the wake of the surgery, John had numerous health complications that led to a flare-up of his preexisting tendencies toward anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The Hospital Suite is Porcellino’s response to these experiences, simply told stories drawn in an honest, heart-wrenching style.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
R. Sikoryak tackles the monstrously and infamously dense legal document, iTunes Terms and Conditions, the contract everyone agrees to but no one reads. In a word for word adaptation, Sikoryak hilariously turns the agreement on its head; each page features an avatar of Apple cofounder and legendary visionary Steve Jobs juxtaposed with a different classic strip such as Mort Walker’s Beetle Bailey, or a contemporary graphic novel such as Craig Thompson’s Blankets or Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis.
