End of the line for Minx

Well, that's too bad. Newsarama reports that DC Comics is ending its Minx imprint as of January. Minx's line of graphic novels was aimed at teen girls who have been voracious readers of Japanese manga comics. The imprint had a pretty high level launch, but I guess it never caught on. Maybe because of readers like my teen daughter. She likes to read, but I tried to get her to read "The P.L.A.I.N. Janes," the first book in the line, and she basically gave it a glance and nothing more.

I was hoping this line would be a success so this news is kind of disappointing.

It seems like female fans are attracted to the same kinds of comics we guys find so very interesting.

It may be interesting to know what percentage of comics are bought by female fans.

Anyone out there know the answer?

I did a story years ago on female comic book readers. I know they're definitely in the minority (unless you count manga), but I haven't seen any stats.
