I love this thing.
As much as I love the guys who read comics and the people all over the gender spectrum who do not judge women for reading comics, I think it’s just wonderful to see the gamut of people who identify as women reading these things in public.
I could look at the photographs for hours.
When I fell in love with comics as a kid, I thought I was alone, I thought I was the only one obsessed with them. Then later, when I learned about fandom, I STILL thought I was the only girl. Other women I’ve spoken with have said the same thing.
If we’d had this day, if we’d seen all these cool chicks all over the world reading comics in public, maybe we would have spoken up more and shared more.
So it’s pretty special to me. Thanks everyone, for participating!

Also, for those who identify more with the male gender, there is:
Both of these are great tumblrs run for everyone, so check them out!
