Read Comics in Public Day

Apparently, August 28 is Read Comics in Public Day.  I only found about it through my Twitter feed today; chalk up the day's difference to timezones, then.

Now, normally I don't go for silly Internet-initiated celebrations anymore (I'm all grown up now, sadly), but this is one advocacy I'm all happy to support.  We all should read more comics.

To celebrate the event, I brought comics to class and gave them to my students to read.  Here they are going through my copies of Death, Jr. and the classic Alien Legion.  Afterwards, they asked to borrow my comics to read after class.  Who am I to say no?

On the downside, I was so busy today I didn't get a picture of myself reading comics in public!
