October 15th is Ladies' Night at Zanadu Comics. The event will start at 7:00 p.m. after regular business hours.
Why Ladies' Night?
Most women have never set foot inside a comic store. Their reasons are many and varied, but most of them revolve around the idea that comics are a guy thing. We all know that's not true. Comics are for everybody. So in hopes of dispelling the myth that comics are for boys, we are having this women only event.
The event will take place on Wednesday, October 15th, at 7p.m. and will run until 9:00 p.m. The owner will be watching the door, but he will be the only male in the store. The guests, volunteers, and customers will all be women.
What's going on at the event?
There will be some snacks, some prizes, discounts and a whole lot of comic book talk. We want to hear about comics people love, comics people hate, and what there is to love about comics books as a medium.
We are also happy to say that some local female creators will be joining us.
Kelly Froh, comic creator (The Greatest, My Body is A Lemon, Samson) and co-organizer of the Short Run Comics & Arts Festival.
Eroyn Franklin, comic creator (Detained, Making Tide, For the Record I Know This is a Bad Idea) and co-organizer or Short Run Comics & Arts Festival.
