Arts Manga Goes Mainstream for Girls

According to the Wall Street Journal, both DC Comics and Marvel will be publishing many U.S. manga titles aimed at teen girls this year, instead of the usual male-dominated titles they have done in the past.
DC Comics is launching the Minx line of manga, with titles such as Good as Lily, Re-Gifters (Tae Kwon Do girl falls for surfer boy and re-gifts him), and Clubbing (goth city girl into music and lit gets caught using fake ID and is exiled to country club life of grandparents).
Marvel Entertainment is supposedly doing the same, but you can’t find anything not action-figure guy-oriented online there.
