The return of Bunty?
This kinda harks back to a previous post or two I did about girls' comics.(They're a good read. the posts, I mean. Not girls' comics. Some of the most interesting comments I've ever received were from those posts. Not much competition, I know, especially these days,with 'many have machines not insuranced'...)It seems that DC is introducing a new comics line for teenage girls. DC's plans are outlined here. Anything that brings in more readers is a good thing, I suppose, but my teenage daughter reads Ultimate Spider-man and Ultimate X-Men. It's probably because she's the daughter of a nerd.
Why is it, though, that through the horrible puberty years, girls want to read about other girls going through the same shit? The boys that do read tend to want to escape the life of wanking and spots. Well, in the fiction they read, anyway.
