When it comes to graphic novels, girls often get pushed to the side as the attention goes to male-centric superheroes and the appeal of graphic novels for reluctant male readers. In the past, this could be rationalized by the predominant number of male authors writing for a male audience.
Unfortunately, focus on only the hero in graphic novels ignores the rise of the strong female protagonist, and of an increasing number of talented female authors and artists.
If we take the time to look, we find there are many options to appeal to graphic novel readers of all genders, ages, and interests.
But especially to girls.
