Forklaringer
paradoxosalpha : An excellent book that drew on family history with a real-world message, but still clearly fiction. Anthropomorphic mice, man.
Michael.Rimmer: Using mice, cats and other animals as metaphors does not make this book a work of fiction. As a family history, it gives a personal perspective on a global event, the metaphorical elements enriching, rather than detracting from, historical accuracy.
elahrairah: a heartbreaking work and astutely observed look at history and trauma.

souci: For me it is one of the few graphic works where the illustrations do illustrate the narrative, but rather ARE the narrative.

Carojo95: Caroline Jones was stunned at what she *didn't* know about breast cancer and cancer treatment so she wrote and illustrated this guide/memoir. The words "You have breast cancer" are some of the hardest you'll ever hear about your health. This heavily illustrated memoir has anecdotal and evidence-based tips about getting through treatment and maintaining your health after treatment has concluded.

nobooksnolife: This work is confusingly referenced. There is the original author, Li Kunwu, and the translator to English, Otie, who also seems to have supplemented drawings.
