The Million Year Picnic Comic Book Store
The Phoenix AKA The Boston Phoenix is accepting nominations for their annual BEST OF BOSTON contest. Please nominate the Million Year Picnic in “Comic-Books Shop” (no we didn’t get to pick the spelling).
Somewhat related on the publicity front, I thought you all would appreciate knowing that Million Year Picnic got a positive mention on a recent tumblr post about Hater-Free Comics
(follow up to Comic Book Stores And Sexism
Earlier this week I asked for recommendations for comic book stores that were friendly to women, and y’all certainly came through.
I’ve sorted them by region, sort of, but in a very loose way. If you have recommendations and missed the initial call, good news! There is now a dedicated tumblr for this, haterfreewednesdays, and you can go and submit a recommendation there for female, queer, and PoC friendly comics stores. A big hand to seekanewerworld for setting that up and modding it.
Please keep up the good work for years to come!

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.]
