Medical Drama Comicon September 8, 2008
I love medical dramas. I have never been admitted to a hospital in my life so to my mind they’re just as realistic as science fiction, cartoons or Fox news. Just something about the way that they’re never really about medicine I think is kind of funny, too. They’re always more about the drama instead. I guess that’s easier to write, film and convey to the audience.
I drew the first Medical Drama Comic while sitting in a hospital emergency waiting room one day. At first the idea was that I would make fun of the people waiting there, but there were a mostly depressed lot that couldn’t stop talking about their problems and really where’s the fun in that? So it turned into more of a way to express my love of the cliches of the format – especially seen in House M.D.
House is the best show ever, by the way. Hugh Laurie Jennifer Morrison is all sorts of yum.
