2012-08-28 - Reading Buffy in Public - 0016

 

In honor of the occasion, here I am reading Volume 1 of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus at the park! I recently finished watching the series on Netflix for the first time (Late to the party much? & also: SO MANY FEELINGS!) & couldn’t stand for it to end, so I decided to give the comics a try. As of this evening, I’m also three episodes into Angel. (Oz!)

Anyway, if you identify as a woman and would like to participate, the tumblr womenreadcomicsinpublicagain.tumblr.com is taking submissions all week! The event coincides with the annual Read Comics in Public Day event, and is “designed to show the scope and diversity of female comic readers.”

I’m kind of a newbie – other than Buffy, the only other series I’ve read is The Walking Dead – and not really the best person to hit up for recommendations. But I’ll take ’em if you’ve got ’em! Hint: strong women are a must. (Comic book creators, pay attention. If I find a series I love, I will buy all the things!)

This particular collection was a birthday gift from mom. Yay mom!

PS – Here I am!
