From the backlog. No idea where I got this one.

Title: Transfusion
Date: 2009
Publisher: Dogooder Comics
Writer: John Curtis Jennison Jr.
Artist: John Curtis Jennison Jr.

Autobiographical minicomic. A hospital patient helps get through his nervousness about the blood transfusions that will save his life by imagining the identities of the five donors whose units of blood he has received.

This is a very stream-of-consciousness reflection on the topic, but also a very heartfelt one. Writer/artist John Curtis Jennison Jr. does a great job of capturing the thoughts he was going through during his hospital stay.

Editing is slightly shaky in some places, but this is a very real story with a great message. Give blood. The life you save might be a comic creator's!

Rating: 8/10
