Putting Pen to Paper: Drawing, Comics, and Advance Care Planning

Recent work in the field of graphic medicine (the interface of comics and the discourse of healthcare) has been created in the areas of informed consent and advance care planning. But no comic currently exists that puts these two together and clearly shows what life-saving interventions such as a code, or long-term mechanical ventilation, or life after either, actually looks like. Could a comic guide to advance care planning be useful for patients, families, personal and professional caregivers?
