Comic book artist and illustrator Dean Trippe is a victim of childhood sexual abuse.
In his “Something Terrible” web comic, he addresses the fear, depression, alienation, and hopelessness he felt for decades and the way a certain comic book character inspired him not only to keep drawing, but to fight and become strong — literally saving his life.
The full comic is available for only 99 cents here and includes an afterword by Trippe and resources for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

(While not “graphic,” per se, the comic is intended for adults, so please be advised.)
