Graphic Novel: The Plague and Doctor Caim

caim-smaller

Synopsis: The Plague and Doctor Caim follows the life of a 17th-century plague doctor: an Everyman with a beak. One day, Doctor Caim is hired by a village to treat both the rich and the poor. He readily accepts this position, but goes about his work with much trial and error. He encounters patients from all walks of life, experimenting with treatments while monitoring his own health and watching the stars for omens.

Research is the integral foundation of both the script and design of The Plague and Doctor Caim. Each medical treatment Doctor Caim tries and every situation Doctor Caim finds himself in is based on historical facts. With the aesthetic of a medieval illustrated manuscript, this graphic novel finds dark humor within the history of the Black Death.
