Most of you comic book fanatics have at least one version of a comic girl that you follow. You may know her better as Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, or some other hero. But if you look back in time, you'll find that there was actually a time when there were no super heroes. In fact, there was no super villain to fight and no evil deeds to carry out. What a wonderful world we would have today if people did not think of superman, batman, and the other big bad guys.
Comic girls are an important part of the comic book world for a couple of reasons. First of all, a great deal of the humor is derived from comic books written and drawn by women. It is rare to find a comic book written by and drawn by a man. And just as the ladies of a comic book audience tend to be more feminine than men are, so do the comic book readers tend to be more feminine than men. It is a very feminine bunch of folks. This has been proven time and again.
Secondly, comic books have a special space that is often marketed toward women. The feminine super heroines of the past are often associated with love and relationships. We often think of comic book heroines as being strong, smart, and capable, but that is often associated with being a woman. Women have always had to deal with gender discrimination, which can be very difficult for any one who is not a super strong woman. Many women tend to lean toward reading comic books about women, because they get a dose of hope and inspiration from strong female characters.
The comic book world can also provide an important role when it comes to teaching children valuable life lessons. Many comic books teach children about death and the passage of time. There is usually a strong moral lesson to be learned from these types of comic books. Strong, intelligent women who are strong willed, never give up, and have a strong sense of right and wrong often get the better of the guys in these comic books. These traits are much more inspiring to a young girl growing up, and is a great lesson for them to learn and follow throughout their lives.
Finally, many women have discovered that they like to read graphic novel comics, specifically those that are geared toward girls. I think this is a great way to keep the kids and teens interested in comics, and to keep the adult readers interested in some of the top comics on the market. Often times the writers of comic books will only target the female population and create a very "girl story." These type of comics will often deal with teenage girls, and the writer is encouraged to put in plenty of spice and excitement that will appeal to the male readers as well. With a comic book centered around a female character, you are giving the readers what they want.
Now, I must admit, I am a little bit of a comic book nut, and I would classify myself as a comic book lover. I have at least a couple of different titles that I love, and I have even purchased the monthly comic books because I really like some of the new ones that are introduced all the time. There is nothing more exciting to me than to open a new comic book, especially one that is written by an all-time great comic book writer. These titles are usually some of the best sellers in the comics industry, and I can't wait for the new titles to be introduced. Even during tough economic times, comic book sales are increasing each and every month! This just goes to show that there is life in the comic book business, and it is definitely going to be around for years to come!
As I was saying, many girls really like to see their favorite comic book characters in action, whether it's super hero or not. I know that as a parent, I really want my daughter to have a ton of fun comics to read, so when she comes home with a new comic book, I know that I will buy it right then and there. Comic books are a lot of fun, especially if you have your kids with you. You never know what they are going to ask for, and if you already have a bunch of comics lying around the house, it's a perfect opportunity to stock up on some of the hottest titles out there right now!
My favorite comic store has several titles that are available right now, and I purchase them on a regular basis. If I didn't buy my comics there, I would never get to enjoy them. Comic stores are a fantastic place to go and find all kinds of great books that feature some of your favorite super heroines. If you haven't picked up a comic book in a while, I encourage you to go out and try it!
