PERRYWINKLE: The semi-autobiographical comic which explains both the real journey of fighting cancer, plus your inner superhero fighting by your side. Bringing a message of hope and understanding.
In December 2014, ‘Perrywinkle’ author and artist Susie Gander was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. During chemotherapy treatments, Susie created a comic called ‘Perrywinkle’ as a therapy to help take in what was happening and also to help others.
Three years on and Susie is now in remission and after positive feedback on ‘Perrywinkle’, ran a Kickstarter campaign to generate a print edition, to raise funds for charity and send onto cancer support centres for young adults and children.
Susie re-drew Perry Winkle and is due to launch at Nottingham Comic Con in October 2017.
