Finally. Finally. FINALLY!
There’s a hot new mainstream comic strip on the market about a zany, quirky woman with a physical disability. Think: “DitzAbled Princess.”
Everything about the starring character, “Jewel,” is fresh. She sashays about with a pretty pink elbow crutch. She’s a talented author, yet her common sense is out of whack. She regards her disability as a perk.
Wanna know a secret? This comic strip happens to be based on reality. Yes, Jewel actually exists! So, does every character in this reality series comic. In order to protect identities, characters are simply addressed by their relation to the actual author.
“DitzAbled Princess” chronicles the real-life experiences of immigrant parents living under one roof with their youngest daughter (“Baby Sis”), and newly married diva daughter (“Jewel”) and their son-in-law (“Hubby.”) Jewel’s ethnicity is never revealed. Nor is her North American urban city dwelling named. Supporting characters include: “Bro-in-law,” “Middle Sis” and "Dear Editor.")
Conclusion: Move over able-bodied folks! “DitzAbled Princess” is here to fill a funny page void, and give you a laugh to boot. After all, Jewel is politically correct.
