Collected parenting comics

Filed under: comics, parenting — ootastic @ 4:52 pm

After years of reading infertility comics, my attention has turned to those dealing with parenting. My family have just reached the end of our first long school holiday (thank goodness for retired grandparents!), so I’ve been collecting some of my favourites while I’ve had the chance. As per that previous link, online comics magazine The Nib occasionally includes relevant non-fiction (which I nearly mis-typed as “mom-fiction”) stories such as Bicultural Parenting by Nidhi Chanani and Maternity Aggrieved by Matt Lubchansky. Mutha Magazine, which explores real-life stories of motherhood, regularly features lengthy comics.  In book form, Kate Evans has published an illustrated guide to breastfeeding in The Food of Love while Lucy Knisely’s autobiographical Kid Gloves is due in February 2019. As I’ve touched on in previous blog posts, several graphic medicine books have been created by parents (bereaved or otherwise) about their children, including Billy, Me & You by Nicola Streeten and Hole in the Heart by Henny Beaumont. Meanwhile, one-pagers by TwistedDoodles often include the antics of her toddler twins.  From the male perspective, LunarBaboon and Fowl Language Comics never fail to make me laugh. It should be noted that these just a few of the many parenting comics available – feel free to suggest some more!
