Mitch talks about the awesome award, being one of the best comics retailers in the world, and how they plan to do for more  Diversity by running a Women in Comics Reading Group at All Star :

We’d like to add too this idea that we are also thinking about creating a general comic reading group but thought it we would try a female focused one first. This is an area of comic readership we are keen to see develop and grow. We can appreciate that it can be sometimes intimidating to potential new female readers to ask questions about what books they might want to check out and we feel this might be a good way to help that in a positive group atmosphere.

The Squeamer chatted to Mark Hartley about his wonderful doco on Cannon Films: Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films.
