Polarity Review

DIG024823_1._SX640_QL80_TTD_Title: Polarity

Writer: Max Bernis

Art: Jorge Coelho

Available Digitally?: Yes

Genre: Superhero

Final Verdict: Buy, with reservations

My take: Using supernatural powers as a partial metaphor for the mania of bipolar disorder is a brilliant way to raise awareness for the disease, but the book falls short despite its attempt at lampooning the superhero genre.

Many people who experience a manic episode report feeling special, powerful, invincible. But what if those feelings weren’t delusions? What if, during a manic episode, an individual really became a superhero?
