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.… (mer)

This collection of short comics written by those with autism helped me to understand life with autism in a new way. ( )
  Velmeran | Mar 16, 2024 |
Sensory provides an intimate yet emotionally expansive collection of short comics by autistic creators. An honest and affirming collection of windows into the joys and challenges of existing as a neurodivergent person in an allistic world. This was also filled with useful information for someone who is autistic or has autistic traits. It taught me what rejection sensitive dysphoria is and when I say my reaction was, “oh my god, that’s a thing? That’s not just one of my own personal failures as a human being?” I am not exaggerating. ( )

This anthology was organized by Ollerton for Autism Acceptance Month 2021. It features comics (some very short, some several pages) from a variety of autistic creators. If I understood things correctly, the comics were originally posted online and got a positive response that inspired a Kickstarter for a physical book.

Quite a few of the comics are focused on the authors' emotions - what being autistic feels like to them, how they feel about how neurotypical folks interact with them, etc. Several of the comics talk about masking and autistic burnout, and some of them include tips for other autistic people about managing potentially difficult things like dealing with tasks, sensory overload, holding conversations, etc. There are also a couple comics that cover things like being an autistic POC and dealing with non-suicidal self-injury.

Anthologies are hard to review/rate because it's rare that I gel with everything in them. As is usually the case, I liked some comics more than others, either because of the artwork, or because I could relate to the content more, or because a particular author's overall writing style appealed to me more.

That said, for something like autism, where experiences can vary so widely, an anthology is probably the best way to go. There's almost certainly something in here that readers can relate to and/or find useful, even if other parts fall flat for whatever reason.

One thing I wish had been done differently: the "want more information" bits at the end include QR codes but no URLs. I really would have preferred URLs. Another thing that would have been nice: some sort of transition between the different comics or other clear indication that a new comic had begun. Even when it was obvious, it was jarring to see vastly different art styles from one page to the next with no other indication that a new comic had begun. Also, sometimes the art styles weren't quite different enough, and I found myself trying to read two authors' comics as though they were one.

(Original review posted on A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions.) ( )

graphic nonfiction - collected comics from 50-some different autistic creators showing their various experiences. Lots about masking, mirroring, burning out from spending so much energy trying to fit in with neurotypicals, coping with overstimulation, finally arriving at diagnosis, etc. Recommended for people with autism as well as those without (we owe it to our friends to try to understand their experiences better). ( )

Informative and interesting insights into autism by creators who are autistic. It's an anthology of more than 50 short strips, so it has ups and downs from page to page but remains pretty consistently engaging. I was intrigued by the concept of self-diagnosis being an accepted standard within the community and any moments from day-to-day living that were shared.

I really wish a little more effort had gone into formatting and editing. The stories could really use title cards to help distinguish them as they can sort of run together with their variant lengths and sometimes similar art styles. And perhaps those extra pages would also have been great places to introduce the individual creators more fully right next to their stories. Most of the stories in the body of the book have no titles or creative names on them, resulting in a lot of flipping back and forth to the table of contents. I was also frustrated to see that the table of contents lists many of the creators by their proper names, but the Contributors section in the back of the book and online at https://asdcomix.com/contributors often lists only their online user handles / aliases/ pseudonyms, so it took a little digging to connect Hallowmations to Angelina Eddins and ebm to Kyle Lewis, to name just two. I've included all variations I worked out in the contents included below.

(An aside: I probably spent 4 or 5 times longer compiling the contents and adding creator credits to Goodreads and LibraryThing for this book than I did actually reading it. Happy obsessive time for me! Yay!)
