Girls read comic books? Do tell. Or as Read Roger says about a certain comic-book honcho's comments, "News Flash: Girls Are Smart." I had to laugh. I'm talking about an article in today's New York Times on girls and comics, specifically DC Comics' upcoming new line, Minx. Cecil Castellucci (one of the YA authors gone wild at NCTE) gets a prominent mention for her new graphic novel, The P.L.A.I.N. Janes.
