Well how well do "comics for girls" sell? Because no one in here is naive enough to think that mainstream comics are successful because they're GOOD.
BECAUSE THAT'S JUST THE THING.
I don't think the argument should be "The majority of comics is aimed at Men" I think it should be "The majority of comics are aimed at People Without Any Taste (see idiots)"
I don't read mainstream comics because they're unfairly aimed at me, I don't read them because 99% of them sukk tha nutz. To be fair, I barely read comics, but if i ever read a "girl" comic, I'd have to say...Wetmoon? And even though it was by a dude, it was good. AND I READ IT BECAUSE IT WAS GOOD. On the flipside, I consider Scott Pilgrim to be targeted at girls, and Scott Pilgirm sukks the aformentioned nutz harder than the best of them.
So what do you think about that? Is there any stake in that argument? You can make "comics for women because women are upset about it" which to me is TOTAL trite bullshit, or you can just force the medium to make better shit. Create the world you would like to live in, so to speak.
I think i'm onto something here...
