An important part in any geek parent’s life – taking their kid to a comic shop for the first time.
At 5-years-old, she is only just learning to read, but I do read comics to her – such as various Batgirl and Batman collections, Squirrel Girl, as well as some Last Airbender ones among others.
When we walked in she said ‘Wow’, and proceeded to take in all the comics around her. She was reeling off characters in a way that made me realise how much these comics are already a part of her life.
She spotted a DC Super Hero Girls comic, and insisted she wanted to buy that one. I said fine, but let’s look around just in case there was something she wanted more.
While she was adamant there wouldn’t be, she agreed – and lo and behold she did find something she desperately wanted – the next Last Airbender collection.
Unfortunately for me it cost about 5 times more than the DC Super Hero Girls one! But of course I said yes – I couldn’t let her first visit to a comic shop end in disappointment. 😊

Haha, it sounds like you have a little comic geek in the making. Which will probably mean a good excuse to spend more time browsing comics and of course buying them!
Starting as I/we mean to go on 🙂
AND she’s still in the Public Enemy t shirt! Certainly looks transfixed by that particular comic. #MySUndayPhoto
Was actually the same day as the other pic I posted (though there are plenty of other examples of her wearing same clothes multiple times in a row!)
What a fantastic experience. Great photo.
Thanks – was too good a setting to not capture the moment 🙂
Is it really bad that I’ve not heard of a comic shop before? I clearly didn’t have my childhood complete!
From my geek perspective it’s REALLY bad…!
Wonderful experiance she looks totally transfixed lovely photo #mysundayphoto
Yeah, she was very into it (until she found a better one!)
Such an important life lesson! Cannot wait too take my boy to a comic store. We are more Marvel fans though! #MySundayPhoto
Oh I’m all about Marvel too – but compared to DC and others their record with female characters is terrible. For the sake of my daughter I am willing to stray…
What a great thing to share together. I really want to take Aly to one now.
Thank you for linking up
What a lovely idea and photo!
Boy9 was started on Asterix and Obelix! Which was great fun reading the speech bubbles to him!
Must take Miss6 to comic shop asap.
