I think this little write-up is really interesting. As it says, “53% of comic readers are now women, up from 40% just three years ago.” I love this trend in comic readership as well as the new content being produced by women, LGBT writers, and other marginalized groups. Diversifying the comic world is a great place to start as comic readership is soaring and more audiences are being reached. I was just at Long Beach Comic Con this weekend and the amount of independent comics being put out by women is amazing, not to mention the attendees of all ages and genders. It’s a growing market that comic publishers like Marvel Comics are cashing in on, to the benefit of readers and publishers alike.
