by Yazan Abbas, Alexandra P. Alberda, and Anna Feigenbaum

In this webcomic, we present three open-ended situations faced by the anxious citizen, who may already feel quite familiar, as they navigate decision-making in daily life post-lockdown. You as the reader are invited to contemplate your own circumstances and choices and how they complicate each of these scenarios.

This webcomic is intended to spark thoughtful and empathetic conversation while exploring the complexities of decision-making during our new and ever-changing post-lockdown lives.

Thank you so much for reading! This webcomic was a collaborative project inspired by Yazan Abbas’s concept and Anna Feigenbaum and Alexandra P. Alberda’s COVID-19 comics and graphic design work.
