Adventures in Babysitting had one of the biggest impacts on my childhood.
I never saw girls my age reading comics anywhere, especially in film. It was always just a boy thing. So when i saw Sara being completely obsessed with comics and Thor i stopped feeling like the black sheep of the world. I shoved my dad into the couch and made him watch the entire movie while i belted out, “LOOK DAD! A GIRL READING COMICS!! SHE LOVES THOR!!!” I was so stoked you guys, seriously. Here i was, this little girl obsessed with Batman that would get taunted by boys and men for reading comics smiling from ear to ear because FINALLY, i knew i wasn’t alone.
I can go on and on about how Wonder Woman needs her own movie, that women can open a blockbuster film. That women in comics DO EXIST and we are proving that every single day. Especially on tumblr. But i just want to thank this film for saving my life, and my comic collection.
Finished all but one of my panels tonight, I’ll hit that one next month. But I am so happy I could fucking cry right now! Batgirl: year one is my absolute favorite batgirl comic, so getting it on my arm seemed fitting.
