  4. How To Buy Comics: A Beginner’s Guide

    The Low Down on Your LCS

    With comics like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Rat Queens, Lumberjanes, Saga and more dragging new readers into the fold by their collars, one of the things we've often been asked for at The Mary Sue are some pointers on how to get started buying comics. As a veteran weekly comics purchaser, I find this totally reasonable, because buying comics is a retail experience that's absurdly non-intuitive compared to the experience of buying any other kind of mass-market print publication.

  7. Young Women Are The Fastest Growing Demographic According To New Comics Retailer Survey

    Meanwhile...

    "While many stores report that their children’s comics sections continue to grow, the demographic that seems to be growing the fastest is young women, aged 17–33. Image titles like The Walking Dead, Saga, and Pretty Deadly have gotten their attention, but Wayne Wise reports that at Phantom of the Attic there are "a lot of young women who are really invested in Marvel and DC titles, as well as the Indies. New titles aimed at this group are an important part of this. Books like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Young Avengers have been particularly successful.' Data from a reader survey by digital comics vendor Comixology supports what retailers are seeing. Chip Mosher, Comixology’s v-p, communications and marketing, confirmed that 20% of its new customers in the third quarter of 2013 were females ages 17–26." - Shannon O’Leary writing for Publishers Weekly on findings in a recent comics retailer survey.

This recent video from PBS Idea Channel unpacks Kamala Khan's cultural significance, framing her as a promising step forward for comics (and media at large).

  10. Media Has a Problem With Representation, and Kamala Khan Can Help

    Hearing people shout "Khaaaaan!" in a happy voice for the first time in 40 years is pretty great.

    That's what the people behind PBS Idea Channel think, anyway. Khan, and other diverse and interesting comic book characters like her -- Mike Rugnetta cites Miles Morales and Simon Baz as well -- are helping to slowly change comic books and comic-loving communities for the better. Don't think so? Watch the video. Maybe it'll change your mind.
