Allegheny Health Network, Marvel and Doner have re-teamed to create “The Vitals: True EMS Stories,” the second in its series of comic books celebrating the achievements of healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 era. The first comic in the series, “The Vitals: True Nurse Stories,” debuted in December.
“True EMS Stories” tells the stories of eight EMS personnel, who were nominated by their co-workers. The comic book was written by Sean Ryan and drawn by JL Giles, Zé Carlos and Ramon Bachs. Cover art was created by Carlos and Rachelle Rosenberg.
“EMS providers are truly the unsung heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Allegheny Health Network VP, prehospital care services Robert Twaddle, in a statement. “With demand for their services at unprecedented heights, and facing exposure to a highly contagious and dangerous virus, they never faltered in delivering outstanding face-to-face care in patients’ homes and in community settings and accident scenes.”
