Are you ready?! The big day is almost upon us! Yes, that’s right . . . it is nearly time for International Read Comics in Public Day! The staff of Fanbase Press would like to wish you and yours a very happy Read Comics in Public Day this Sunday, August 28, and we invite you to do simply that: Go and read comics in public!
Read Comics in Public Day was created by Brian Heater and Sarah Morean of The Daily Cross Hatch in 2010 in an attempt to encourage fans to show their geek pride for all to see. Over the years, comics and graphic novels have grown in popularity and social acceptance, but we, as geeks, should always to do our part to encourage that growth.
Nervous to read comics in public by yourself? Not to worry! There are groups meeting all over the world to sit quietly and read together. To find out if there is a group meeting near you, check out The Daily Cross Hatch or on Facebook.
We hope that you will join us in celebrating this special day!
