random ramblings of an unconscious mind
Today, 28 August is the annual “Read Comics in Public” Day. This movement was created by Brian Heater and Sarah Morean in 2010, in an effort to mainstream comic reading in public places. Their belief is that by allowing strangers to watch people reading comics will reduce any shame associated with comic reading and nerdiness/geekdom, thus promoting comic books and readership.
So today get out your new/favorite comic books and go outside for a read. Also do not forget to take a picture of yourself reading the comic out in the “wild” and upload it here, showcasing the various locations that people read comics.

Update: My contribution to the day is posted below and the comics read where Mr. Punch by Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Falling for Lionheart by Ilias Kyriazis, Archie and xkcd. The most treasured moment was when a group of girls passed me by and one of them exclaimed “Buffy!”
