    I didn’t mean for that comic to end on a defeatist note

    My intention was to spark a conversation, not discourage others from going into comic shops.

    My experiences are NOT isolated events, but at the same time, there are people out there working hard to reclaim comics and open their doors to an inclusive customer base. 

    A Tumblr user has recommended Hater Free Wednesdays to me, a blog that compiles safe comic shop spaces based on user reviews. You can use it and Yelp reviews to find shops near you where you are more likely to have a good experience. A lot of shops specifically strive to stand up against the status quo, and be a welcoming, inclusive space.

    There are some amazing things happening in print comics right now. Sometimes it feels like an uphill battle, but we can do this. And it will be easier if we’re together. Talk about it and spread the word. Pre-order comics by creators who get it right. Research and give your business to “safe space” comic shops.

    So let’s do this. We do have power.
