Cape and Cowl Comics and Collectible’s origin was in the idea of an entrepreneur who grew up in Fall River, and dreamed to bring geek culture and literacy back to the rural area of beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada! With a focus on youth and learning, local kids and families can re-connect with the love of reading through the wonderful medium that is comics and graphic novels!
Leighann Wichman was a pillar of love and the ultimate approachable soul. She was passionate about a few great things: comics, video and board gaming, and, most importantly, helping youth find their geek pride, gender expression, and voice. Leighann was one of our local heroes, who’s legacy of love will live on through the countless people she helped. The only strict policy she adhered to, was that of openness and inclusion, where everyone discovered their value among safe spaces. This is what we believe, and the values we find important to carry with us through the “Leighann Wichman Safe Place.”
