Netflix's original series Daredevil, which stars a blind superhero, was originally hard for blind audience members to understand. The series was released without audio description that would make it accessible to the visually-impaired. TV broadcasters are required to release such descriptions for some content, but Netflix, as an internet streaming service, faces no such requirement.

Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik (American) "The Menorah" ~ Artist’s Statement: The Knesset Menorah is itself a history text, with scenes carved, detailing the history of the Jewish people.

If any comic has a claim to have truly reinvigorated the genre, then The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller--known also for his excellent Sin City series and his superb rendering of the blind superhero Daredevil--is probably the top contender.
