During the spring semester I took a sequential art class, where I practiced drawing things like comic strips, story boards, and graphic novels. I saw it as a great opportunity to do something Lymphie-related and soon came up with a short story about a teenage girl, Minnie, who has lymphedema in her leg. She’s incredibly self-conscious about it, and when she realizes that she has to sit next to her crush, Reese, in English class, she freaks out; if he notices her swollen leg, he’ll be so repulsed that he’ll never want anything to do with her again!
The comic itself is a little rough and there are some errant ink splotches.. perhaps someday I’ll work on a more cleaned-up version. Anyways, I hope you enjoy it!
