The wonderful blog DC Women Kicking Ass is looking for a few volunteers to lend a little of their time for a short research article. To participate you must be female, buy your comics at a local comic book store, and have another comic shop nearby that you don’t frequent. She estimates that it will only take an hour or two of your time. You can contact her by sending an email to dcwomenkickingass (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Unfortunately I can’t participate since I’m in Japan and get all my comics online, but if you or someone you know fits the criteria you should check it out!
