Here are the graphic medicine books coming out in January 2021. These lists will be about books that I have not yet read. If I have had the opportunity, I will let you know what I thought. If you have read one or more, please leave a comment about what you thought!
Bookshop.org supports indie bookstores. I have become an affiliate of them. This means if you click on these links and purchase the book, I will receive a 10% kickback. Buying the book this way means you will be supporting me as well as indie bookstores. If you have any questions or concerns about this, let me know. You can find lists for graphic medicine books out each month as well as a list of major graphic medicine books. I will keep adding to this list.
