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.
