You and Dave Roman have both touched on areas of this that most other people seem to have missed. Namely what it is that "girl" readers are looking, and why certain things are more popular.

And I agree wholeheartedly. When I was the age these books were being targeted at, I was reading a lot of fantasy that was of the YA kind (The Dark is Rising, The Secret of the Unicorn Queen)...or reading "up", things like Stephen King or Death: The High Cost of Living. I didn't go for the gossipy books, but I understand why they're appealing. Same thing with Twilight...I have the same issues with it that you do, but I completely understand why girls of a certain age are eating it up.

I think Minx missed out on a lot of that by not looking at different genre's or avoiding some. But anyone saying this is an indication that girls don't read comics or don't read isn't paying attention. They didn't read -these- comics...and for a lot of reasons.
