A powerful study in introspection, inheritance, and the manifestation of hypochondria by a talented indie cartoonist. Beautifully illustrated and poignantly told, the author investigates the guilt they carry as a young Filipino person born into a family that benefited from the Marcos regime, and how that materializes within the physical body.

  • "Cicatrix is beautiful and deeply honest, a clear-eyed look at something strange and unexplainable―family, harm, guilt, and our own fragile bodies." – Eleanor Davis (The Hard Tomorrow)
  • "It is, all at once, a confession, a plea, an angry scream into the void and an examination on injustice, karma, and guilt. Cicatrix is raw, painful, and precise." – Rob Cham (Light, Lost)
  • "Through Elle's deft cartooning and impactful narration, we are confronted with the truth of comfort. Elle does not look away from this truth, and the thoughtfulness and skill in their work ensures that neither can we." – Ashanti Fortson (Leaf Lace)
  • "With Elle's writing and art it's like they invented comics just so they could make them." – Diigii Daguna (Mami)
  • "What do we do with the guilt we carry for living comfortably off the cruelty of our predecessors? Elle processes this complex question both bluntly and elegantly, weaving physical and emotional turmoil to create a brutally realistic story of this unique anxiety." – Kiku Hughes (Displacement)
