English abstract
This paper discusses comics for the Blind, based on the example of life by Philipp Meyer. It looks into the potential and the restrictions of sequential pictorial storytelling that is accessible for blind readers. Special attention is given to the elements of comics' narratives and the technical background of tactile text and image representation.
