Ninette - Thin is never thin enough

Interactive Comic Ninette - Thin is never thin enough

Drawn with a light touch and a love of detail, this interactive comic tells the moving story of 14-year-old Janette: how she becomes anorexic but manages to recover from her illness with therapeutic help and the support of her family and friends.

In 11 episodes with lively illustrations we accompany Janette on the way to finding her own identity.

This striking comic is supplemented by additional information in the form of articles, podcasts and interactive tests which have been developed in cooperation with prestigious experts.

With an attractive modern design and presented in a sensitive way, this interactive comic adopts an objective approach, providing an analysis and explanation of the subject of anorexia, which is often still taboo, and makes a significant contribution to its prevention.
