Unsurprisingly, some of the most important and interesting work in graphic medicine in 2020 related to the coronavirus pandemic. The sheer volume of comics-based material related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is immense and growing daily. For this reason we focus on web-based COVID-19 comics rather than individual book publications as we have done in past year-end reviews and group some of the more notable efforts into emergent categories of instructional, personal stories, and therapeutic comics, highlighting some of the most interesting exemplars in each category.
