In her graphic memoir, Marbles (2012), Ellen Forney reconciles her dual identities as an artist who takes risks and promotes change and as a person living with bipolar disorder who seeks (and occasionally resists) stability. This paper analyses how Forney uses particular narrative and optical devices to establish an idea of identities ‘in company,’ to destabilise stigmas around mental illness, and to invite new understandings of what ‘closure’ means in terms of both the phenomenology of reading comics and illness narratives more broadly. The text presents a model of living with disability as an ongoing act of actively balancing dimensions of one’s identity as distinct, perpetually present, and in relation.
