Father creates comic book to help his daughter

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2016-09-21 09:20

About the solution

These comics feature a superhero who is also on a wheelchair, and whose powers come from her disability.

“The project began when Emily, my daughter, was three, and now she's nine. We searched and searched, and we just couldn't find anything in entertainment industry that related to her. So I decided to create it", he explained.

Dan quit his job to work as a full time artist, and hopes he can make a dent in the traditional way media show superheroes by making the disable community see that also them can be the heroes, and empower them.

“It’s something that’s showcasing disability as power and strength. Every kid, no matter what, has that ability”, the father said.
