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!

Even better, as far as I can remember there has always been at least one woman working the store, sometimes as many as four. The Picnic's never had that fanBOY vibe.

I know, right?

Supreme snarkiness on occasion, but never fanboy gross.
