"Often informative, sometimes moving, and ambitious in its frank talk about what is oddly taboo: an inevitable experience for half of humanity."

-Publishers Weekly

"Playful and enjoyable indeed, as well as moving, affirming, and solidarity-sparking."

-starred review, Booklist

"The cartoons in Menopause: A Comic Treatment depict what is generally considered an unbecoming, if not humiliating, life event. This collection, edited by M.K. Czerwiec, joins the Graphic Medicine Series (Escaping Wars and Waves) in treating a complex topic with candor and creativity. Twenty-five comics represent diverse women and their experiences, in drawing styles as distinctive as the artists."

-Shelf Awareness

"Shattering the silence and secrecy surrounding the 'big change,' Menopause: A Comic Treatment offers an unflinching look at an often stigmatized or taboo topic."

-Mike Rhode, International Journal of Comic Art*
