Editorial Review:

Product Description:
In 1970, Dick Moores, the cartoonist for Gasoline Alley, helped introduce the American Public to the physician assistant concept when he had a leading character, Chipper Wallet, become a physician assistant. Chipper was a former hospital corpsman who served a tour of duty in Vietnam during 1969. He was awarded a bronze star for helping save the life of a young Vietnamese girl. Since Chipper's story historically parallels that of other former military corpsmen and medics who became PAs and since the comic strip drew national attention to the PA concept in its formative years, publishing Chipper's story as a special edition comic book assured this seminal event in PA history is not lost. The story unfolds chronologically over a period of 50 years, 1967 to 2017. Having the strips compiled and published in one document provides a coherent presentation of Chipper's experience in the military, his application to and acceptance to a PA school, his PA student days, clinical rotations with Doc, his graduation and first year practicing as a PA. Jim Scancarelli, Gasoline Alley's current cartoonist, reintroduced Chipper back into the comic strip in 2016 and 2017 to help celebrate the PA profession's 50th anniversary and to bring Chipper's story full-circle; a fitting tribute to a pioneering physician assistant.
