The Charlotte Journalism Collaborative and BOOM Charlotte, an arts festival, have teamed up to produce a graphic novel about the effects of the coronavirus in the North Carolina city. The novel, called “The Pandem!c: Stories of COVID-19,” will be divided into eight chapters, and will tell the stories of people in the region who have been affected by the pandemic.
In the introduction chapter released over the weekend, the novel looks back at the days in March when COVID-19 first came to North Carolina, and the wave of shutdowns that followed.
