Image of the Week: A medical-focused manga comic

This image comes from a manga comic produced by Ian Roberts, MB, a professor of epidemiology and public heath at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

As the New York Times reported this week, Roberts created the comic to increase awareness among emergency physicians about recent scientific evidence showing the clot-boosting drug tranexamic acid can increase survival rates among trauma patients.

In the Times piece, Conor Rabinovitz, a die-hard manga fan and the 19-year-old son of Scope contributor Jonathan Rabinovitz, also offers his thoughts on the comic’s storyline.

    Thank you for featuring the comic. Just a note to say that I was the artist commissioned by Dr Ian Roberts to create and draw the project, and Paul Duffield was the colourist. We were happy to work on using comics to promote something so important ^_^
