Chester Brown - My Mom was a Schizophrenic

Chester Brown is the only Comic book Artist I know whose tackled the subject of Schizophrenia. He based the book on how the work of Emil Kraepelin and Eugen Bleuler, who first diagnosed the disorder, is still accepted by mainstream Psychiatry. This is despite Thomas Szasz's discrediting of their work, claiming that they did not discover the disease, but invented it, and that the disorder cannot be detected by medical tests and thus should not be considered a disease.
