Hey folks, just talked with Tony and we're not going to open today.

BUT, the current plan is to be open tomorrow (Sunday) from noon to 7pm.

Come stop by! We'll nerd about comics and winter-, snow-, ice-, and cold-based villains.

Hater Free Comics! Safe Spaces for Comics Fans [Feb. 9th, 2013|04:56 pm]

This is pretty cool.

A comics fan named Copperbadge posted a sympathetic response to someone's issues with sexism at her local comic shop by inviting people to comment with "recommendations for shops in your area where you’ve had positive experiences as female comic fans."

Copperbadge then aggregated the comments into a new post, Hater-Free Comics and we got a great mention!

This also resulted in the creation of the Tumblr http://haterfreewednesdays.tumblr.com/ titled "Safe Spaces for Comics Fans" and we're currently at the top of the list!

Black-owned, with at least one woman as a clerk, MYP is full of awesome.

[mod note: I can vouch for this one too! I’ve always had really great experiences there.]
We are honored and flattered to be included (says the previously mentioned woman clerk)!

Special thanks to idhren24 for bringing this to our attention!
