Support No Flying No Tights!

In 2002, I launched No Flying No Tights as a resource for library workers, educators, and fans. Our goal was and is to review comics from a library point of view and advocate for the format.

For over 20 years, we’ve continued to be a resource, especially for library workers. We work to make sure everyone has comics on their shelves and is supported showcasing the format.

Over the years, we’ve tried ads and other funding options to support the site, but none felt like the right fit. We want to remain an independent, trustworthy site for our readers.

We now ask for your support as readers.

you can keep us online for another 20 years.
