Written by Darren G. Davis, the novel provides a different perspective on being HIV positive. Instead of dying, as so many characters do in movies and books about AIDS, the main character is living and fighting.
The novel channels the raw emotion of the author, who is also HIV positive — a diagnosis he received in 1999 — and is said to be based on a journal he kept following the diagnosis.
For those not familiar with the story, Lost Raven is about a lawyer who is diagnosed with HIV and then sets sail for a new life before encountering a mysterious island.
Check out a couple of panels from the first few pages of the graphic novel.
