Read Comics in Pulic Day Events for 2011

26 August 2011 by

YES, it is once again time for the annual Read Comics in Public Day (RCPD). Grab your comics and graphic novels this Sunday and head somewhere public to show off your love of the sequential arts.

Last year, 2010, was the first ever RCPD. I made a Facebook event and invited all my friends, but it was just a handful of us at a Starbucks. Though, I have to say, I’m rather pleased that I got a random dude sitting nearby with his latte to read a comic with us (had a BIG pile to share).

This year looks like RCPD will be much bigger everywhere. Heck, just my little Facebook event for San Diego has double the number of people it did last year.

Some meet ups scheduled to celebrate Read Comics in Public Day 2011:
