5 Comics We're Excited for at Comic-Con 2014

The Atlantic looks at the question of whether women read superhero comics: “the number of female fans seems to vary between 41 and 47 percent. Even more interesting, querying Marvel, DC, and superhero comics on Facebook gave him a figure of around 36.5 percent women. He also checked on “likes” for female comics characters, and found that about 62 percent of them were from women. Of course, Schenker could be picking up on women who are fans of superhero movies rather than the comics (the Avengers’  audience was 40 percent women). Even so, his figures suggest that there are more female superhero comics fans out there than many other surveys have indicated.”

As Batman turns 75, the comic book icon isn’t just enduring, he is thriving.
