(Bumping because this is fun!) I had a rough weekend and I know a lot of us are facing today with gritted teeth, so I want to do something happy. I want to hear about the best compliment you've ever received, the full story. Because we need to chose to think about good stuff sometimes.
I'll start us off. My dad was catching up with a former coworker a few months ago and she asked how I was doing. I haven't seen this woman for...ten years? Maybe more? And he told her about how much I was getting into comic books, and how surprised he was when I told him about how male-dominated the space was, how badly female fans were treated and how few women were able to break into the industry.
Without missing a beat, she looked at him and said "So how many has she published?" The fact that she just knew I wouldn't be able sit there and complain but would have to get involved was a big ego boost.
(I'll proabably boost this a few times over the course of the day to get everybody's answers.)
