Ripple Effects is a 5-issue series that explores life as a superhero with an invisible disability.In a world that is no stranger to superheroes, George Gibson is invulnerable to physical harm but fights every day to stay alive. Suffering from an acute case of type 1 diabetes, his invincibility is offset by a defective pancreas that must be monitored and treated daily. This incurable disease makes George's body both his greatest strength and his eternal weakness. What sets this series apart is a positive, person-first representation about life with a chronic disease . . . which just so happens to also include superhuman abilities. But, Ripple Effects isn't just a story about a character with an incurable disease. It's also a thrilling and relevant superhero tale that touches on the difficulty of finding a work/life balance, the class struggles and economic inequality experienced by many in our nation, and the desire to help others during trying times.In an effort to help readers better empathize with and understand the difficulties of navigating invisible disabilities, this collected volume contains essays written by individuals with invisible disabilities, each one relating to a specific scene in the series and how it speaks to their own lived experience.
