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!

I'm not the only one; someone else just submitted the following to the aforementioned haterfreewednesdays:
million year picnic, harvard square, cambridge, ma

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.]
