Medic is… well, it’s a bit of a strange one… and it’s one that I’m very fond of. It’s essentially distilled down into the idea of “If My Mom Was a WWII Medic” and I think it works pretty well.

The comic went through a few iterations before we amped it up and heightened it to make it more extreme. I mean, come on, kissing guts? That’s not going to make anything better at all. I had a hard time drawing some of this so I admit that I had to do a little bit of research and look at some images for inspiration.

No, I didn’t look up war images or dead bodies or anything like that. But I DID watch the beginning of Saving Private Ryan a few times, particularly the scene with the one guy crying for his mommy as he held his guts in his hand. Okay, so maybe it’s a little morbid but I figured it would be better for my psyche to be looking at fake, Spielbergian guts than the real thing. So there you go.

  1. Thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for you, purposely watching the beginning of Saving Private Ryan over and over again just to see the one guy crying for his mommy as he held his guts in his hand.
