On this week’s Comics Syllabus podcast, Paul’s guest for the “General Ed” segment is Matthew Noe, medical librarian and specialist for graphic medicine, the use of comics for health care purposes. Matthew joins Paul to talk about what graphic medicine is and where it came from, offers some sources and resources in the field (see below), and discusses a few comics exemplifying graphic medicine in practice.

Then, on the centenary of Jack “King” Kirby’s birth, Paul offers a discussion of the “Jack Kirby’s New Gods Artist Edition” from IDW. (Confession: this is a replay of an episode recorded last year.)
