In the last several months, there has been a great deal of anger about the comic book industry and it's portrayal of women characters. There has also been a great deal of dissatisfaction with the "big two" and their dirth of crossovers and the mixed end results. Fans seem a bit burned out and irritated in general. I feel the same at times, and find myself grasping at straws trying to justify continuing in the hobby.
To help put a bit of a salve- a different twist on things, I am putting out a challenge to my fellow bloggers and site reporters and owners. Take one day next week from Sunday, July 29 to Saturday, August 4 and do a post that reflects on an event in the past year that is comic book related and has made you smile. Maybe it was one issue of a comic book you were happily surprised about. It could be a shared moment at a show meeting a creator or a fellow fan. It can be anything positive that can give your fellow fans something to think about on a positive tip. It is up to you.
Are you up for it? Let's band together and find some joy, even if it is for just a brief moment. It would make this fangirl a happy camper and spread some love to boot!
