Girls Do Too Read Comics

The popularity of shôjo manga, or graphic novels for girls, continues to grow at a remarkable rate domestically,

“Female readers in the United States and Canada have strongly demonstrated that manga is now a medium to be enjoyed by both sexes.

Somewhere Johanna Draper Carlson is saying "I told you so!"

I though the info about how boys are reading an enjoying them too was very nice info as well. In the direct market they are always talking about wanting the female readers, to see a company that says "we have male readers too!" like that is unexpected is sort of refreshingly different.
