This short and sweet piece says girls — and women — are the ones that will keep the comic book market alive. I don’t think it’s too far off (except on Y: The Last Man Standing. I read the first collection and I didn’t like it).
I do hope the fixation on manga does translate to non-manga (or even non-manga-sized) comics. But I do think it’s a matter of getting these girls and women out of the bookstores and into the comic book stores, and even I, who have been playing this game longer than most, knows that can be a challenge.
