One of the most popular Marvel comic books is Daredevil, which follows the story of a blind superhero. Daredevil already spawned a movie and a Netflix TV show. But what about blind people? Can they read comics? There are ways to experience comic books, like the Comic Book Script Archive and a Graphic Audio company that produces sound versions of the stories. However, now some artists and comic creators have decided to create books that go beyond what could be accomplished with just Braille. These creators are making tactile books that can convey objects, story and emotions.
Comic Book Script Archive
Some visually impaired readers use the Comic Book Script Archive to experience graphic art. The Archive contains outlines of the comic book issues submitted by their authors. The archives not only include dialogue, the records show story beats, panel placement, colors, facial expressions and all the small details that tell a story. Unfortunately, the number of comics submitted to the archives is limited, meaning blind people have no way of following print run of a certain number of issues.
