The Continence Gang – published in 2001 – was a comic book written by Esther Quintal for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Esther wrote that ‘Continence is something my people do not understand … It is clear that incontinence is a problem and causes shame for many’. It was a challenge getting the ideas and messages into pictures, but  a lot of fun as  Esther encouraged me not to hold back.

Last week Marjory Kobold, one of the coordinators of the project phoned to say that Esther had died.

Esther’s book was one of the most popularly requested Government publications. Here is the cover and opening story:
