I regularly read Octopus Pie, and for a brief moment, I thought that it might be going to slip in some disability awareness. But not this time, apparently.

When Hannah complains about being a cripple "doomed to society's mediocre scraps and reassuring backpats," and then Eve actually gives her a reassuring backpat, I expected the rest of the strip to follow through. But instead, Hannah storms off and Marek and Eve, respectively, excuse her anger on account of being disabled and deny her right to be angry.

Maybe in the next intallment? Not that there's any guessing. I read it in part because the storylines don't have a particular point to them, though they do have an arc.
