Summary: "Jacqueline Danziger-Russell contends that comics have a unique place in the representation of female characters and readers. She discusses the overall history of the comic book, playing special attention to that of girls' comics, showing how such works relate to a female point of view. While examing the concept of visual literacy, Danziger-Russell asserts that comics are an excellent space in which the marginalized voices of girls can be expressed. The book also includes a chapter on manga (Japanese comics), which explains the genesis of girls' comics in Japan and their popularity with girls in the United States. Including interviews with librarians, comic creators, and those who read comics and manga, Girls and Their Comics is an important examination of the growing interest in comic books among young females and will appeal to a wide audience, including literary theorists, teachers, librarians, popular culture and women's studies scholars, and comic book historians."--Back cover.
