Are comics the last hope for boys?

Why are comics such a boys club? is a familiar complaint in comics circles. Examples of how mainstream comics seemingly go out of their way to alienate women readers, and reinforce insensitive handling of female characters (the famous "Women in refrigerators" thesis) are easy to come by, and easy to scorn.

But while we're quite sympathetic to these complaints, and are often found lodging them ourselves, a recent study suggests that comics may very well be one of the last bastions of male literacy.

RIP Dick Giordano 1932-2010

Comics lost a giant with the passing this morning of Dick Giordano, a former Executive Editor at DC and an influential inker who helped shape the look of Bronze Age comics and usher in a new era of talent.

Giordano's career included work at Charlton, Dc and Continuity Associates, the studio run by Neal Adams. As Adam's inker on such much admired works as Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Giordano's techniques influenced a generation of inkers, including Terry Austin, Bob Layton, Al Milgrom, Joe Rubinstein, and Bob Wiacek, essentially setting the tone for the entire Bronze Age of comics.

Not a Creature Was Stirring, and Then There Was Maus

by Rich Johnson

I started writing this piece on Maus as my son Evan was studying the Holocaust in school. I pulled out my hardcover slip-cased edition that had been lying around. He loves comics and graphic novels – I knew he would either love or hate them because of the career I’ve had. I am happy that he loves them – he even wants to write them. I guess if you spend part of your childhood running through the hallways of DC Comics they get into your blood. He was exposed to them at home too; we have comics and graphic novels everywhere.

He picked Maus up and said it looked interesting and he couldn’t put it down. Evan took it to school to show his teacher and they discussed it at length. I think by reading about the mice and the cats made the history of that horrific time more real to him.

Kibbles ‘n’ Bits — 3/26/10

Wow, these really piled up.

§ Icv2 sits down with Toykopop's Stuart Levy to talk about the state of the company, the manga market and so on. Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

Much of it is plain talk:

There’s not as much depth overall in the category as there was a few years ago. That’s because of a lot of factors that everybody’s familiar with: there’s a lot more product in the marketplace, there’s less space overall in the retailers, there are fewer customers in the stores and there’s certainly a lot of accessibility to content online. So if somebody isn’t convinced and won’t actually purchase a graphic novel or a series, they have other ways they can consume it without making that plunge. All those factors combined have limited the breadth of the salable titles at retail. The last issue is that there’s still a question as to which retailers will not only survive but become stronger over the next few years, and which may or may not make it including some of the national chains.

But some reveals more of the entrepreneurial streak Levy is known for:

From my point of view, the thing I’m really excited about right now is that we’re doing a tour this summer. Basically I’m hitting the road with one of my guys and six students, university students. We’re auditioning right now to choose the six. We’re going to be in a bus for three months. We’re going to tour America and we’re going to film it for the Web as a reality show.
