March has historically been Women’s History Month and in an industry that is placing growing demands on equality on both the creator and story side, the comics community has co-opted March into Women In Comics Month with notable feminist voices inside the community such as Gail Simone and Kelly Sue DeConnick promoting independent female creators across social media in the spirit of awareness. Additionally, pro-Women in the Comics Industry groups such as The Valkyries (an organization of women working in/owners of comic shops), have been highlighted in the media and used their notoriety to organize events and promote female-spearheaded projects.

I ended up giving many of them away to neighborhood kids since I couldn’t sell them on the Internet. The same is true about local comics shops. There have been times when I’ve been complacent after patronizing the same store for an extended period of time. When I stop to think about it, it had morphed into a place I honestly didn’t care
