Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A colorful and eclectic comics anthology exploring a wide range of autistic experiences—from diagnosis journeys to finding community—from autistic contributors.

From artist and curator Bex Ollerton comes an anthology featuring comics from thirty autistic creators about their experiences of living in a world that doesn’t always understand or accept them. Sensory: Life on the Spectrum contains illustrated explorations of everything from life pre-diagnosis to tips on how to explain autism to someone who isn't autistic, to suggestions for how to soothe yourself when you’re feeling overstimulated. With unique, vibrant comic-style illustrations and the emotional depth and vulnerability of memoir, this book depicts these varied experiences with the kind of insight that only those who have lived them can have.
Bex Ollerton creates introspective comics about mental health, neurodivergence and the general struggles of being a human being in an overwhelming world. Ollerton tells stories that convey an emotional truth to raise awareness of anxiety, depression, PTSD, and neurodiversity.

“The world needs more literature by autistic writers. There is a dearth of literature by and for autistic people, and this fills a gap in a refreshing and much needed manner. ”

“There are many different art styles and representations throughout the anthology, and they all capture neurodivergence clearly.” (VLA 2022 Graphic Novel Diversity Awards)
