Some do, but most girls who are all LEL I LUV COMICS XD either read absolute dog shit or don't read comics at all. They just want to be part of geek sheek culture.

Grill reporting in, yes we do. In fact it was my female roommate in college who got me into comics with Matt Wagner's Grendel, Miller's Ronin and a couple Hellboy trades.

when I was like 10 years old, yes. but then they closed the only place in my town that used to sell comics and videogame magazines (it was some short of library, dunno). so I moved to cartoons and anime (I know, I know, go back to /a/).

My 14yo sister does, sometimes. She either picks one of my books or asks me to find her stuff on the internet. She has read stuff like TKJ, 300, a couple of modern Deadpool and Batman arcs

Other than that there was this one girl that used to read Dylan Dog during spare times in highschool

And that's my whole experience with vagània-equipped comics readers

My sister does, but we're a family that has essentially all grown up on comics.
Dad used to collect and read in the 70s. Hung out with small local publishers and went to cons. Shit, he bought his first car by flipping a collection he bought from some guy.

My sister has basic knowledge of characters and history/continuity. She mainly reads DC teen titles like Teen Titans & Young Justice. She's hunting for preNu52 series of Young Justice. Marvel side she's a Deadpool reader. She doesn't follow particular writers, mainly just characters. She realizes that some writers are shit, but admits that she'll recognize when something is shit and stop purchasing it at that point, so that's reassuring. Outside the big two, she'll read the odd title here and there, but ultimately she's into young capes.

she's also always on her fucking phone reading Marvel/DC fanfiction the crosses over with Harry Potter and Naruto

Yes, we had the internet in the year 2000. Also It wasn't anything graphic usually just ff nudity. My mom threw away any picture with a genitals in them because they were "an affront to God" but here have a Hedgemaid curtesy of 10 year old me.

I used to use my friend as a library (he was chill about it) because he had subscriptions to a bunch of things, but I can be really cheap and would only buy my own copies if I really liked something. If I got something he didn't already have I would return the favor and let him borrow it. I like graphic novels more than I like continuing series. Blankets, I Kill Giants, Koko Be Good, the Rabbi's Cat, etc. But I used to keep up with Invincible, Locke and Key, Fables, Unwritten, and others. I also really dig Blacksad. I'm not big into capes but I've got the Killing Joke and the Cult lying around because Batman's always pretty good.

How many of these girl sitting on a pile of comics pictures exist?

What do girls think of le gamer/geek/comic grills that clearly do it for attention? What about their thirsty beta enablers? I dislike them but don't blame them as they wouldnt exist if not for those that suck their tits
>>
>>78965866
Generally I ignore them, though I do have a lot of dislike for them. If it's something online it's easy to brush it off. If it's someone in real life I tend to quietly rage in my head about it and try to not overreact much when I witness it. I don't think it's helpful or attractive to try acting superior in person, just let them make fools of themselves if that's what they want to do.

Archie is an example of what comics could be without Diamond. I imagine Batman would sell over a million issues a month if it was in supermarkets
>>

so why does everyone put up with diamond

What the fuck does that even mean? Is misogyny just ANYTHING that makes you uncomfortable? I can't think of a single comic (outside of very specific issues of Cerebus) that is actually misogynistic, unless you're going to say "drawing a women with large breasts" is somehow bigotry.

>>78971015
There is LITERALLY not an alternative, but the courts have ruled it's not a monopoly since "comics are books" and there are "other" book distributors out there...even though none of them distribute comics...

A couple of young women I dated back in college read comics. One was into Claremont-era X-Men, another was into Gaiman's Sandman and manga (she was into Oh My Goddess! if I recall). So they're out there.

My niece reads a lot of the OGNs and serial TPBs published by Scholastic (Jeff Smith's Bone, Raina Telgemeier's Smile and Drama, etc.). They're apparently popular at her school's library.

I also have a female cousin who was a huge X-Men comics fan. When we were kids, she used to buy two copies of every issue of Uncanny X-Men (one for herself, a second copy for me and my older brother... she was real sweet). She doesn't read the X-titles anymore, though. I think these days she's mostly into Image Comics titles and reprints of Silver Age/Bronze Age-era Wonder Woman.

I made my ex read I Kill Giants, Birthright, For All Seasons, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane and A Contract with God. the first few issues of the Wicked + Divine, and that Gillen Loki arc. She hates them all but supposedly read them. I don't reallly believe her because it used to take her like a real long time to read through her shitty YA novels she loved but she sped through these stories. Maybe she didn't appreciate the art or the idea of stories being told through sequential art? Weird, because she was an artsy girl. I'm pretty sure she's just dumb.

Can confirm as female that I read comics. I wouldn't call myself a comic nerd or anything (idk if there's a name for it) but I do want to read more, I just can't afford to commit to any at the moment.
The ones I've read are: Y: the Last Man, Low, Maus, Watchmen, Persepolis, some of Fables (dropped it) and a few weird indy ones. And SaGa

My girlfriend read all of Sandman way before I met her, but hadn't really read any other comics. She was actually the one that convinced me to read Sandman. After we met I got her to read Saga (which we both agree is just mediocre, but she likes the art). She has a bunch of my comics on her HD that she wants to read, like Lucifer, Swamp Thing, and Books of Magic.

For Christmas she downloaded a bunch of obscure Euro comics for me, Mobieus stuff, Incal, Blueberry. She is great.

Femanon here and I used to a lot. I got real into comics around 2000 when I first read Ghost World and started buying a bunch of capeshit as well as the usual required reading (Maus, Watchmen, JTHM). I sort of fell off after getting real into Scott Pilgrim at the expense of everything else. I could probably still enjoy a Daredevil or Booster Gold or something if I tried but I haven't really bothered. I'm mostly here for the cartoons side of the board now.

I mean from a reader viewpoint. Are you one of those idiots that think reading comics is somehow a less significant form of reading? I alternate between books and comics but they both have their own merits and looking down on comics simply because there is less dialogue is not only dense but it's condescending as well.

I used to work with a young woman who was actually decently knowledgeable about late '70s to present Marvel. My brother's ex was starting to read some older DC stuff she had access to, and getting clarification from me on cameos or random pop-up tidbits that she didn't quite know the source of. And, I had an ex who actually had a decent collection of random '80s/'90s fantasy-esque comics and some Nocenti and Chichester Daredevil.

It happens periodically, but a lot of them don't really advertise if they're into comics beyond watching film/TV adaptations. They're not unheard of, but most people don't really go on about interests unless they know you have some kind of background in it.

I hate to break it to you, buddy, but most Americans that do read comics read Japanese comics.

I know it isn't as as much as the height of the manga boom / bubble, but pretty sure manga imports are still outselling domestic product.

I remember around 2008 or so Wired had an article on manga sales. Plus Publisher's Weekly and some other articles I saw.

That is how fucked and up its own ass the US comics industry is. Imports from Japan, a secondary market for them, are outselling our domestic product.

Fuck. I don't think the American domestic car industry was doing that bad versus imports and some of them got a fucking federal government bailout.

let's be real. how many male /co/mrades do you think are /fit/ themselves?

really, saying there aren't women in comics or who read comics is a self fulfilling prophecy. The more idiots, both male and female, say it; the more they will drive women away from comics.

I remember some snotty.. whatever the US version of a chav is.. girl talking to her mom at Toys R Us. She was complaining that the mom shouldn't buy some Marvel superhero for a young female cousin because those are for boys. What a dumb bitch. Some women are just as much the problem here as men.
>>
>>78992485
Its a better deal. A single volume gets you multiple issues, only for $10. American trades are expensive as fuck, and mostly just filler. Or you buy the single issues at an outrageous price for 20 pages, then you got to wait a month, or in cases like Image, it can be 4 to 6 months.

Well, even cheaper manga is starting to go up a buck or two thanks to inflation in the past ten years. Thougb I would say the ten dollar mark for a manga volume in 2005 dollars is a pretty magic price point.

Oh fuck yes.
They were like 70-75% of the market at turn of the century and still over 60%. And they made that majority of the market into an artificially inflated shitfest that seems like something out of the Bear Sterns playbook that was part of what crashed the entire economy in 200i.

To be fair though some must but the ones that do you'd never be able to tell apart. It's like games. If you know then they want you to know and they're annoying attention whores.

Yes. Because casual attention whore dude bros never play games.

Can we stop pretending video games are 'nerdy' or some kinda male geek niche?

You might as well pretend watching movies is a thing only nerdy guys do.

Video games are a mainstream thing played by both genders, nerds and non-nerds alike.

I should suggest Hellboy to a female friend into reading and drawing gothic stuff if she already hasn't read some of it. I know she met Del Toro at NYCC and even got him to sign her copy of The Strain.

Yeah okay
Casuals and attention whores are very different unless you mean the LP kind of loser. Besides casuals can suck shaft. If all you play is destiny and GTA then I'd rather talk about something else, you know? THat's like saying Star Wars fans are into scifi. They aren't. Just engage on the casual thing if you like it or ignore it. One science fantasy film does not a scifi fan make and some casual games doesn't not a game fan make.
I have listen to classical music, I'm not a classic music fan.
You're a complete numb skull and a namefag so I guess that makes you the perfect representation of brain dead, try hard attention whores.

Everything is still in it's niche
there are artsy fartsy films that only film school majors would watch and then there are movies that you can watch whenever you want because they are on cable constantly
There's high fashion that only the elite would ever wear and then there's the shit that are knockoffs whatever that one celebrity wore that one time

Of course it's not like Star Wars is even sci fi. It's fantasy with sci fi window dressing or maybe a sci fi fantasy hybrid at most.

Star Wars only became "nerdy" after nerds started getting into it
Star Wars was a major motion picture that only became "nerdy" because nerds were obsessing over it

Nothing is actually "nerdy"
Nerds are nerdy and they get intense about things that most people don't get overly zealous about

>Video games are a mainstream thing played by both genders, nerds and non-nerds alik
Nerd or non-nerd is usually self defined and essential based on your interpersonal or relational skills so that is a moot point
Unless you mean nerd as in 'game nerd' wherein the person actually likes plays and has experienced a lot of games in which case it matters.
To break it down, the majority of games are played by men. Most of the women getting on the numbers is due to phone games, which to call back to my star wars analogy doesn't make you a big fan of games. It does make you a big fan of candy crush but not of 'games' in their entirety or any meaningful way past the domain mobile
Similarly there are only so many sales attributed to those who you call 'dude bros' like some early naughties call back. If we're defining them the same they'll buy, one or many sports games every year, a shooter like Battle field or COD, GTA, and the best marketed triple A game (this year see: Fallout)

Yeah. Video games aren't niche.
Non FF JRPGs? Sure. That's a nerdy niche.
Comics in general and superhero flicks aren't niche.
Reading Hellboy or Warren Ellis. That's more nerdy niche.

And, of course, everything is a matter degrees and relative to each other.

At a certain point trying to prove your nerdiness becomes more like being a hipster by finding more and more obscure niches to claim you were into before everyone else.
>>
>>78999357
I literally noted it was scifantasy like two sentences down fuckwit. Point still remains, people liking 'a' game or 'a' comic or perhaps a collection of highly saturated main stream comics or games or whatever media or activity doesn't make you a 'fan' or an 'enthusiast' or even a significant member of the group.
I own a bike but I doubt the government counts me as part of the cyclists votership. They are a very specific set of people united by interests not a passing fancy in an activity (and so it is with all interest groups).

>And, of course, everything is a matter degrees and relative to each other.
What is even your point? (rhetorical question)

>prove your nerdiness becomes more like being a hipster
Being a nerd is about obsessive dedication, not proving you liked something before it was cool
Nerds aren't hipsters
If they were, they'd just be called hipsters

Comics are still niche as fuck because hardly anyone reads them. All they do is discuss them. That and the general public would rather watch movies. Capes are in vogue but comics still are not.
Hell rpgs in general are niche excluding big triple A titles. I can't even understand where you pull these norms from.

All that needs to happen is a deescalation. Less comics with higher quality. It's a small market acting like a big one. If people are interested they will pay. Niche interests live on through those enthralled by it not big industry.
What you're suggesting is some big manufactured push for new demographics but all that does is alienate the old fans and make things artificial. Comics as they are now are a hardened interest that many people have and it's theirs to keep. It can crop up in new ways else where but it shouldnt be hacked apart in an attempt to keep popularity growing. If people are interested things will happen, new comics made with new demographics by people who understand the niche demo they're writing for. Not by diversifying legacy characters and trying to pull some minorities into the stores Things shouldn't happen to bait and artificially create interest unless you're running a business. Rather interest should inspire creation

I went to my LCS yesterday to pick up my order of a whopping 2 comics.
In front of me was a girl - an early 20s, decently attractive blonde girl at that - who's order was a pile 3 fucking inches thick. Storylines she was reading kept bleeding over into other series, so she bought them too to get the whole experience.
I also have a friend a few cities over - also a girl - who spends as much disposable income as she can on Marvel and already has several boxes full of flagship titles & events.
They're ideal fans desu.

No.
A "graphic novel" means a novel, or a book, told through graphic means (illustrations). So more ambitious storytelling-wise than your average monthly / weekly comics.

It's even in the damn dictionary, look it up.

Both had big-budget worldwide-released adaptations. Moebius hasn't. Your analogy falls flat.

>>79007412
Blueberry had an internationally released movie with Vincent Cassel made in the 2000s though, even if it isn't too faithful to the source material.

The analogy stands. I'm sorry if it upsets you but calling Blueberry of all things "obscure" is just as laughable as in my example.

If it makes you feel better you can substitute The Flash for the Avengers.
Now imagine the face of an US comic enthusiast when some Yuropoor brags about having downloaded some issues of this real "obscure" American comic series called "The Flash". Imagine it.

How something was originally published, like if it was published serially in a periodical, does not invalidate its status as a novel.

For example,
> The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case.

Just because something is published in a newspaper or magazine *which is what comic books floppies are), that doesn't mean it can't be called a graphic novel,

>>79008561
Right but that's completely, totally utterly completely, beside the point that was being discussed.

The argument was about whether or not "graphic novel" can be used to mean an ambitious, somewhat contained story told in comic form, or whether it means a normal book that just has graphic violence in the content (or whatever the fuck >>78983594
meant with "Stephen King writes graphic novels").

It was a question of whether or not "graphic novel" can be used to mean a story told with comics-style images at all, or if it means textual prose with violent content.

Seriously, you're either autistic or should really learn to figure out what the topic being discussed is -before- joining the argument.

I even tried to tell you to read back on the comments so you wouldn't embarrass yourself like this, sheesh.

The point about the floppies was that no-one would call something as endless and overarching like Archie or the X-men a "graphic novel", since "graphic novels" tend to be neater and self-contained with a clear end. More like books or book series, and not like comics titles that don't tell one overarching story, or branch off to different titles or parallel universes or storylines or crossovers, or go on for decades etc etc.
