A downloadable comic

A newly-married woman and her husband stay in a rented house while looking to cure her depression... but there's something wrong with the wallpaper.

“The Yellow Wall-Paper” is a short story that was written in the late 1800s by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, after she suffered a serious downturn with depression, upon taking a doctor’s advice to engage in the “rest cure” and abandon creative pursuits forever. Now, more than a hundred years later, this image-rich work has been interpreted by artist Sara Barkat in “The Yellow Wall-Paper: A Graphic Novel”—in a manner that combines both philosophical thought and visual intrigue.

Sometimes understood as feminist literature, sometimes understood as exploring mental illness, and sometimes understood as both at the same time, this story is oddly poetic even when it is chilling and challenging.
