Issue 31: Sidekicks

While heroes are quick to soak up all the attention with parades and accolades, those on the periphery can easily go unnoticed. This issue we give a shout-out to the sidekicks — humble and unassuming, but important nonetheless.

Let’s give long overdue applause to the supportive role of antidepressants, to a chemist whose mates always outshone him, to the writing system tying together two ancient languages, and to the sidelined schizophrenia symptoms finally emerging into the spotlight.

Go, go, sidekicks!
