Discussions about graphic novels and military health care will be featured in February as part of the Association of the U.S. Army’s “Army Matters” podcast series.

First up is a podcast featuring Chuck Dixon, a veteran comic book author who has produced more issues of comic books than any other living author today. Dixon is known for telling the stories of superheroes such as Batman, Robin, the Punisher and John Rambo, but his work on AUSA’s Medal of Honor graphic novel series has allowed him to bring to life the stories of Army heroes to incredible effect.

On the podcast available Feb. 14, Dixon talks about the next graphic novel in AUSA’s series, honoring World War II hero Staff Sgt. Ruben Rivers, and gives insight into how a graphic novel is created.

Next up, the podcast will feature Lt. Gen. Telita Crosland, director of the Defense Health Agency. Crosland, who has been in the job since January 2023, is the first Army woman to lead the agency. A 1989 graduate of West Point, Crosland decided at the age of 5 that she was going to be a doctor. She has served in the Army for 30 years, and as director of the Defense Health Agency, she oversees health care for almost 10 million people in and out of the military.

During the podcast, Crosland will talk about how the agency takes a leadership role in health care in the country and shares stories of mentorship.

The episode is available Feb. 28.
