Read Comics in Public Day


Now this is my kind of holiday! Brian Heater and Sarah Morean, the head honchos at The Daily Cross Hatch, have put forth a simple-but-brilliant idea: A day of the year encouraging people to read comics in public!

As Brian Heater puts it:
The concept is fairly simple: we’re asking that everyone take an hour or two out of their day on August 28th (also the birthday of Jack “King” Kirby, incidentally) to read a comic book in a public setting—a park bench, a beach, a bus, the front steps of your local library (we do ask, however, that you be mindful of local loitering laws). Let strangers see you reading a piece of sequential art.

Sounds like a good idea to me! If you've been waiting for the right time to start reading your first graphic novel or volume of manga, give Read Comics in Public day a go!
