Support Your Local Comic Book Store TODAY!

local-comic-book-day

A worthy cause.  No other medium in modern western civilization comes even near comic books when it comes to the need to explore and promote the classical virtues.

Today is Local Comic Book Store Day. Most comic shops have limited markets and can always use much bigger ones.
 
For what it’s worth, my kids would not be the kids they are without comic books inspiring them to read, to think imaginatively, and to emulate heroes who are not afraid to speak and act in the name of virtue. I can say the same about myself (whatever my faults).
 
If it helps to overcome the stigma that comics are “funny books” or juvenile, just think of comic books as intricately and nobling moving and interlocking stained glass.
Or, consider this.  All modern comic book heroes are simply medieval saints and classical heroes and demigods in modern garb.
 
So, without hestitatiion, I encourage you to support your local comic book store today.
