Chapter Nine of Fullmetal Alchemist isn’t action-packed, but it gives us a lot to chew on regarding injuries and healing — physically, mentally, emotionally. So it’s a great time to bring in our first guest: Alice Jaggers, an expert in the field of “graphic medicine” — a term covering not only sequential art about health topics, but the making of comics to aid healing. Alice joins Tim and Patrick to talk about all the ways in which this chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist — and, in fact, the whole series — touches on numerous graphic-medicine-related issues.
