A comic about dealing with diseases and gene mutations

Fierce Pharma reported on a science comic called Meet the PROS, focusing on how to deal with disease illness:
Comic books and kids go hand in hand, so Novartis created a custom book to reach kids with rare diseases caused by PIK3CA gene mutations.

Specifically meant for ages 8-12, the “Meet the PROS” comic book centers on five superhero characters who are also children living with different manifestations of the disease.

Led by Professor P, the children use their superpowers to help young readers learn about PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS) disorders—and find their own heroes inside themselves.
This certainly sounds like a good idea and premise for a children's comic, and a good addition to the health and science list of stories in comic format about these issues.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
