Comixology’s Rapidly Growing Female Demographic Sounds Familiar

Supergirly

She’s 17-26 years old, college-educated, lives in the suburbs, and is new to comics. She prefers Tumblr to Reddit. She may have never even picked up a print comic.Techhive, on the female demographic average of Comixology, the largest digital comics retailer.

I’m guessing that Comixology’s female userbase (which has more than quadrupled since the site’s launch) shares a lot of demographic similarities to a majority of our readers as well. Then again, we haven’t done a reader survey since 2011… gotta get on that.

And, it goes without saying, if you’re new to comics and reading this, ask for recommendations in the comments! If you aren’t new to comics, post your faves.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
