    This article conducts the first in-depth political-aesthetic analysis of Joyce Farmer and Lyn Chevli's Abortion Eve. In this article, we argue that Abortion Eve uses its visual form in a way that cuts between the contexts of later forms of graphic medicine and feminist comix, and in so doing contributed to a political culture of feminist information sharing, through a self-published visual medium.
