Dharma Comics creator Leah Pearlman left a tech career to find herself in stick figures. Her series of truth-inspired comics helped her welcome the “goodness and fear, beauty and pain, yearning and humor” that are part of the human experience. Her new book Drawn Together: Uplifting Comics on the Curious Journey Through Life and Love is a collection of the most beloved of these illustrations. Here, she shares 12 of her poignant comics.
