First Mexican Comic Book in Braille
on 20 January 2015
For the first time ever, a Mexican comic book has been released in Braille. Writer Jorge Grajales and cartoonist Bernardo Fernandez decided to create the comic book after noticing that only 1% of all Mexican publications are released in Braille, leaving very little opportunity for nearly 1.2 million visually impaired Mexicans to read. Titled “Sensus. El Universo en sus ojos,” the graphic novel tells the story of an astronaut who begins to lose his sight after crash-landing on a foreign planet. The duo has plans for two follow-up releases set for early 2015.
