Disability in the Comics

Luann has had Zane, a wheelchair-using character, for a while. Until now, he’s been pretty much a token crip (just like everyone else, except in a wheelchair), but this past week, the strip has begun addressing wheelchair stereotypes:
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday

I think I identify the most with Wednesday.

    Excellent comics — they really make one think. Thanks for pointing the way. I don’t get to see the comics every day.

    Yeah, I identify with Wednesday too. I just keep reminding myself that when people continually say things like that, they’re just trying to ease their own discomfort. And that just makes me uncomfortable, knowing that they are. They have their nerve, actually, they’re not the ones whose legs don’t work.
