Jon Claytor: A Comic About the Opioid Epidemic In my Small Town (Part One)

Sackville, New Brunswick artist John Claytor has been doing a series of true life comics about the impact of drugs on his small town in Canada. Informative, off the cuff and heart rending, these are all available at his Instagram. Here's his first one.

"This comic about Naloxone is the first of a series of comics about the opioid epidemic and it’s effect on the small town I live in. I am working with the guidance of Ashley Legere, a Sackville, New Brunswick resident and Wellness Navagator with Ensemble (a harm reduction centre in Moncton). We will be talking to people who have experienced overdose and lived, and with the families of those who didn’t and making short comics about those conversations. The sole purpose is to try and raise awareness and encourage compassion for a problem that effects people in all walks of life and in all communities.
