61. A bad argument

Considering that the majority of new books cost $3 - $4 a pop and can largely be purchased through limited distribution of the direct market as opposed to newstands, corner stores and drug stores, it's not an accessible medium overall for "teenage boys." The majority are men in their twenties and up, which is why most books barely break 100,000 issues a month and the majority are in the 30-40,000 copy range.

And even still, it's a worthy discussion because there is a lot of imprinting and bad habits being taught to young men and women that read these at an impressionable age. Best to chip away and make progress with the change. It won't happen overnight - which is good and bad - but it is happening. For every flareup like the Spider-woman cover, we get a lot of great books that are smart, well illustrated and without the heavy fanservice while still being sexy and appealing where it should be. I'm looking forward to the Spider-woman book itself because of what Dennis Hopeless is bringing to it, though I'm wary of the Greg Land artwork.
