Hi, my name is Nicki, and welcome to Fangirl Wednesday!
The name “Fangirl Wednesday” arose from my almost-weekly meetings with one of best friends and fellow comics fangirl, Traci. We would meet at our local comics shop on Wednesdays when when we had new books to pick up. After purchasing our books, we would go to dinner to read and discuss our new comics and other fandom stuff. One of us (and I’m not sure which one any longer) started referring to these meetings as “Fangirl Wednesday”, and the name or acronym “FGW” stuck.
I’ve been a passionate geek my entire life. As a kid, my favorite things were Star Wars, Wonder Woman and The Muppet Show. Not much has changed except I’ve picked up other fandoms along the way. I’ve been a gamer since my Mom bought me an Atari 2600 and 13″ black and white TV for my bedroom for Christmas.
When not reading, gaming, or doing grad school homework, I can be found watching hockey and soccer non-stop, or taking photos with my trusty Nikon D5100 or new mirrorless Sony a7 III.
