By the late 1990s, he moved away from comics, only to return years later with a series of graphic journalism books in which he uses the comics medium to delve into difficult matter. His book 'Psychiatric Tales' (Blank Slate, 2010), for instance, delves inside the mysteries of mental disorders - presenting explanations and recollections using the cartoonist's own experiences as both a psychiatric and care nurse and as someone who himself has suffered from depression.
