How do American comics suck so badly at appealing to girls?
>>
>>78335068
You're not a girl
>>
>>78335068
cause American culture can't decide whether they want girls to be strong independent and educated or pretty things to look at and fuck while they make you a sandwich. So it keeps sabotaging itself from start to finish. Strong girls get married and become romance shows halfway, princess shows end up with "GRLLLL POWER" episodes and "every white man is evil" plots.
>>
>>78335089
>GRLLLL POWER
This is the problem, girls don't care about this, Japan has figured it out, they have a huge woman demographic that buys comics and games cause they know all they want are cute boys and or cute boys kissing each other.
>>
>>78335068

Because like 70% of all the writers are men in their 40-50s.

They're not exactly doing a good job of appealing to dudes these days either

At the moment the trend seems to be... not comics FOR girls (because thats mysogonist pandering) they want boy comics to be about girls for girls but still have the COOL boy stuff. GTFO smelly boys, the girls have taken over now and we're cooler!

Or BEING cute too. Women care about the surface. Hell, look at that picture in OP. Girls putting on make up. Girls being attractive. That's all they give a shit about, no matter how much you kick and scream and cry they don't because you DONT WANT IT TO BE THAT WAY.

Are like this naturally? Are they conditioned? Who the fuck knows for right now -- the point is that being a good looking person who has sex with other good looking people is what women care about the most.

Without accepting that, appealing to women is a fruitless endeavor. If you're not appealing to their vanity you're not appealing at all.
>>
>>78335068
Because little girls should be princesses that follows daddy or else they won't get to play with their toys
>>
>>78335156
In the series in the OP image they are kogals, which are basically the kind of girls who do tend to put on a lot of makeup.

Though the protagonist is the 'pure but looks like a slut' and all into JUSTICE and stuff, because her parents are cops. Been a while since i've seen it.

Yet this isn't true of the medium in other countries to any where near the same extent. Even limiting the discussion to super hero style series, there are still ways to create interesting, human heroines resorting to soapy bullshit or making females feel embarrassed for associating themselves with the culture.

Or they do but they read romance novels that take me like all but a few hours to read, she's reading it in six months. Meaning she probably reads three paragraphs, takes a picture of herself doing so and captioning it "#SONERDY" and never touching the book again for a few months.

Because there's no market for it in the US.
You could probably grab a female audience in their teens if the industry started to look at what attracts them to Shojo manga and shows like Attack on Titan and Death Note, but as far as young girls are concerned there's just no demand for it

There's certainly potential, but there's a strong unwillingness to take things with female focuses themes seriously. It's not impossible though and I feel that an influx of web comic creators could help.

the weird part is that boys care about being attractive too. Just because they won't use make up doesn't mean it's ok to wear a potato sack at school

Some times you need to just realize that appealing to a group means appeling to the lowest commom denominator.
After all, look at the video games that are popular with woman:

American comics suck at appealing to anyone who isn't a hardcore comic fan.
>>
>>78336251
The problem, /pol/ meme aside, is that most comic publishers don't wanna bother to write a book "for woman", they just wanna take a regular book and change the main character to a woman or just make them gay for full SJW pandering. If a chick wasn't buying Thor before Whor, than they aren't going to buy the same book when it comes to tone and action but with a female lead. But Marvel doen't understand that, in their minds:
>Chicks like Thor cuz Hemsworth is a hottie
>Thor movie sells aren't translating into Thor book sells
>Better make him a chick, that'll get 'em.

DC does a much better job with stuff like Batgirl and Gotham Academy. They are clearly made with a female audience (and female sensibilities) in mind and that's just fine.

As as you said, yeah, girls aren't going to wait until America figures that out when Nana, Paradise Kiss, Rose of Versailes, Oniisama E, Revolutionary Girl Utena, etc etc. Already exist and provide them with what they want, and some times with even interesting female characters. Hell, your average shonen series have more manservice than "le Dick has a nice butt" meme

Because adult men and women are too busy playing gender politics to actually care about what girls want. They're writing what they think young girls want.

Young girls want Sailor Moon, Pretty Cure, Jewelpet etc. They don't care about MUH STRONG FEMALE LEAD and all that other shit. Just like young boys don't really care about Steven Universe singing and wearing a dress. Most young boys just want to see cool characters and cool fights.

Which is why Japan will almost always be a step ahead when catering to these demographics. Shueisha/Jump is starting to move into cape comics and My Hero Academia is better than a lot of superhero shit I've seen come out recently.

how many of you are women?

anyways i've liked comics ever sense i was 11 and watched the original teen titans - it had young characters that looked more like me and less like buff or busty adults, it had action, it was funny, and it had character development and an overarching plot. young justice appealed to girls for the same reason, but got cancelled because it didn't sell enough toys iirc. the biggest turn off of american comics to me wasn't the subject matter so much as the overrendered style of drawing.

in 2015 there's plenty of comics read and written by women, they're just not big 2 - stuff by people like lauren weinstein, esther pearl watson, lynda barry, etc...
>>
>>78335156
It's hanlf and half. Most people (notice not only girls) do care about the surface above everything. Being and liking stuff that's socially acceptable becomes huge once you hit puberty and young adulthood.

But that's the case for common denominators. Comics have their own niches. They don't need to be aimed at boys or girls separatedly (Tell me one example that tried that and didn't come out as a failure). Trying to target demographics based on gender is way harder, in comics, than aiming at groups based on age.

Stop marketing to girls and start marketing to kids in general.

Girls tend to like more character interactions, but you can get the "strong female lead" quota out of the way just by having the females in a show on equal footing with the males, both narratively and otherwise. You don't have to reinvent the wheel or anything or even have the girls be leaders. Nothing screams "forced female presence" more than having 1~3 girls in charge of an action team that consists of almost exclusively boys, unless those girls actually show competence indicating that they should be in that position.

Boys tend to enjoy fight scenes and such more, but they don't dislike a decently-written character scene if it isn't actively interrupting a fight or something else they think is cool. Lot of boys in the marketing tests for LoK didn't care that the new avatar was a girl. They thought she was friggin' awesome and a real asskicker. She eventually turned out to be a massive disappointment, but let's leave that aside for now.

Both genders love stuff that incites their minds. Make kids think. Don't dumb shit down because "lel it's a kids' show". I'm not saying you should go full grimderp and kill somebody every episode in a bloody mess, but don't ignore that death and other such themes exist, don't pretend like everything's happy all the time, and don't write a simplistic plot because you think kids won't get it. Kids are smart little fuckers. They get a lot of shit better than you probably realize.

Also, I know it wasn't brought up, but fucking hell stop trying to make a big deal of interracial or homosexual relationships. Keep them around but don't point them out as "different". Those old "PSA" episodes from the late 90s early 2000s were fucking cringeworthy.

tl;dr: Good writing, solid characters, quality action, and everyone in positions that match their competency regardless of gender or any other shit would make the perfect show.

I fucking loved WITCH but acknowledge that it kinda screwed the pooch in the long run. The writer change sucked and I really wish the original writers would tell us what their plans were, but things like the Light of Meridian and omgcalebismysoulmate were actually interesting. Caleb being a murmurer was a good plot twist and served as the catalyst for Cornelia eventually getting over herself.

A major issue was that around the time that Orube left the team, everyone's character development seemed to backtrack a bit. That's fine; old habits die hard, but when it's 5 issues until the finale and we have Irma doing the same "I'm a shit student" miniarc and Cornelia doing the "I'm a huge bitch" episode, it gets grating.

Also the cartoon was garbage, even if it made Phobos into a real threat again.

This is going to sound really retarded, but dumb children don't need entertainment, they need education. If they're too stupid to "get" the entertainment then they're too stupid to be doing anything but studying. Besides, by allowing and excusing "stupid" entertainment, you're telling kids that it's okay to be self-induced retards.

Of course, that assumes that marketing doesn't work for the greatest common denominator, which it does. That said, I'm a teacher and I see smart kids all the time. They're far from 100% of the populace, but there's plenty of sharp knives in the drawer.

This is just an anecdote but I was drawing a female superhero yesterday and I needed a reference image. So I hit up my pinterest boards because those are good for reference images, and I go to a board that's all Batgirl poses.

There were more pictures of her standing around with a smug grin than doing anything remotely dynamic, actiony, or heroic.

There were more pictures of her taking selfies than there were of her throwing a punch.

Because American comic culture never cultivated the enormous diversity of demographics that the industries in other countries did(e.g. Japan with its shoujo and josei magazines).

But cross-demographic appeal is a big thing too.

In Japan during the 90s you saw many shounen designs drift from the hulking manly man bodybuilder physiques like Fist of the North Star, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and DBZ to more slender, often prettier designs like Ruroni Kenshin or the later JJBA artstyle, partly to appeal to the female fanbase.

It's not like comics never did this, throwing in "little sister" versions of superheroes like Mary Marvel or Supergirl. Not to mention Wonder Woman, of course.

But they are learning. Look at Midnighter and Grayson.

That's actually not true. We had divesity of demographics but then Seduction of the Innocent and the Comics Code killed it. Before that there were horror and romance comics, which had adult/female audiences respectively.

Partly I think you'd need more female creators and writers/artists. it isn't that men can not write for women nor that women can not write for men but you're more likely to get a hit from someone who is the same gender as the target audience. Women can relate to women's interests and experiences better. I think there ARE able female writers but they are still bound by male superiors who dictate specific restrictions because they think it will sell better.

Only recently have there been successful female oriented titles to look to for direction, prior the industry lacked examples of success stories so they were still bound to common themes and tropes that appealed to men, "Just add girls".

Lastly I would say that entertainment needs are met by novels. Girls and women read more fiction than their male peers and the disparity is especially notable in the teen years. There is so much fiction being released aimed at them they don't need to seek it out in comics. The profit margins may simply be better and less risky with novels, why bother making comics? That said the comics industry may find it valuable to look at novels to gleam what is popular and interesting to the female demographic.

Why do comics have to appeal to girls?

I never really got this. Do writers literally have to go out of their way and try to appeal to women by putting in tropes and shit just to gain some dollars from a specific gender? Can good writing appeal to women? Or do we just have to fill it with lesbian tropes or someshit?

My only gripe with the whole "strong female lea" thing is that most of the time the entire story flat out just sucks. If you boot up netflix there is a whole playlist category dedicated to the strong female lead, and almost all of the movies have less than 3 stars. The only movie that doesn't bad ratings on the entire playlist is The Hunger Games.

I hope feminist writers and investors understand making a good story with a normal female lead, furthers the agenda than writing a subpar story with little to no funding and a golden female hero that is invincible.

Fuck women, fuck anything female. Even a female dog is inferior to a male one. Fuck them all, they can have their cake and eat it, I'm fucking done. I'm not doing it anymore, I'm done trying to impress these heathens, I'm done trying to jump through one hundred hoops to maintain the attention of a 5/10. I'm not fucking doing it anymore. These whores want to create an anti-male environment then so be it, there isn't enough 10/10 males to go around sweethearts so you better start looking up different breeds of cat to find which ones match the paint in your one bedroom apartment where you'll be living the rest of your life.

Seriously I'm fucking done.

Comics are for low life subhuman manchildren trash aka males.
Why would women with their superior tastes care about this obviously inferior medium?

Because the business has become a bunch of pussies.

As a business we're moving towards trying to be inclusive, but if you make one god damn mistake (making a character attractive or a quip about something taboo) you get a bunch of shit.

It's honestly hilarious that /co/ is pretty much the only creative board that attracts a crowd who seriously hate mahou shoujo and find it offensive to their manly sensibilities. Pretty much everywhere else you'll find only the highest praise for Sailor Moon and even /lit/ acknowledges that Pretty Cure is secretly decent.

It's like a little boy who hates Barbie solely because it looks girly.

They probably haven't even watched it, just get turned off at anything that looks moe.

Because, no matter what American comics do, they will probably piss off girls in one way or another.
