Who are the Valkyries?
We are the women behind the counters of comic shops worldwide. Owners, managers, salespeople, event organizers and more! We pull accounts, place orders, set up displays and tweet our picks of the week. Some of us are new to comics, some are lifelong devotees, but we share one thing in common – we all live for Wednesdays and the lifestyle that comes with them. The Valkyries are a community of fans and friends, and we’re growing all the time.
Want to join us?
Membership is open to women (of all ages, backgrounds and orientations, including LGBTQ+ folks) who are currently employed by a comic shop anywhere in the world. Join the conversation with hundreds of other Valkyries – discuss ladies’ nights and book clubs, current trends and news in geek culture, and check out our meetups at dozens of conventions annually! The Valkyries are a constantly expanding network, and we’d love to have you.
