Joe Goofus: The Asthmatic You Don't Want to Be (But Probably Are)
Asthmatics like our friend Joe don’t like anything to interfere with their fun. They have an asthma attack, go to the ER, half-listen to the nurses, doctors and respiratory therapists, and then take their preventative medicine until they start to feel better. Then they go back to having fun, until the next asthma attack. Illustrated by Dash Shaw.
