What is Valhalla?
Where The Valkyries are comprised exclusively of comic shop employees, Valhalla is open to anyone who works with comics; librarians, curators, bookstore employees, former comic shop workers and more. Valhalla started as a place for former Valkyries to talk, but we’re expanding to include a wider variety of people who work with and are interested in comics.
Why not just open up The Valkyries?
The Valkyries receive exclusive information and previews from publishers under the agreement that only currently-employed retail workers have access to them. In order to respect and continue this relationship, we have to keep the two separate – but many Valkyries are also members of Valhalla.
Want to join us?
Membership is open to women (of all ages, backgrounds and orientations, including LGBTQ+ folks) who do comics-driven work in libraries, museums or bookstores worldwide, as well as current and former comic shop employees. Join the conversation with hundreds of other members – discuss ladies’ nights and book clubs, collaborate on team-up events between shops and libraries, keep up on current trends and news in geek culture, provide advice and guidance in developing a presence for comics in your organization, and check out our meetups at dozens of conventions annually! Valhalla’s Valkyries are a constantly expanding network, and we’d love to have you.
