    The SPIRE Federal Credit Union serves residents of Minnesota and Wisconsin, so that would explain why us New Yorkers have never heard of it before. But it's already found its way into our hearts, by choosing a lady who likes comic books for one of those "look how homey and personal and not a capitalist edifice we are" commercials.

Here is the good news: they made a shirt designed for young female wearers, and another shirt for men that has Wonder Woman on it!

    With a special guest appearance from Animorphs!

    August was certainly a busy, complicated, and frustrating month for women in nerd culture, wasn’t it? So guess who decided to write an article about her own experience with gatekeeping and why she didn’t get into comics until her 20s. I have either the best or worst timing for this.
