Chipper Comic Book

Chipper Wallet, PA-C, has come back to wish PAs a happy 50th anniversary! The PA History Society has compiled the Gasoline Alley© comic strips featuring Chipper Wallet from 1968 to 2017. In the comic strip, Chipper Wallet was a former Navy Hospital Corpsman who fought in Vietnam. He came back home and became a physician assistant. His story mirrors the stories of many pioneering PAs and the comic strip was how a considerable number of the American public found out about the new PA profession. The current Gasoline Alley© artist brought Chipper back into the strip to have new adventures for the 50th anniversary of the profession.

The PAHx produced this special edition comic book as a commemorative 50th anniversary item to help celebrate the 50th anniversary and is a great gift to help tell the story of what a PA is and how the profession began.
