Read Comics in Public Day: Photo Round-Up

Read Comics In Public Day on August 28th was a success in the sense that people did in fact read comics in public all around the world, and in the sense that, unlike last year, we were able to round-up more than four photos of people. See some of the best photos submitted, a few the CA staff took, and several found around the internet with no small thanks to a great Flickr pool, such as the above photo of a fan reading Batman at the Eiffel Tower.
