DC pulls the plug on Minx

If you're a female reader between the ages of 13 and 18 then first off, I think its awesome that you've found Omnicomic (be sure to tell your friends). If you also happen to be fond of DC's Minx line, which is a series of graphic novels aimed at teenage girls in teenage girl situations, then you probably won't be so happy. ICv2 reports that DC is pulling the line after nearly a two year run. Why? The books did better in the direct market, as opposed to being in bookstores. But even still, there wasn't much of a connection with the target audience. DC said of the shuttering, “Minx was an experimental imprint for DC Comics and we are extremely proud of the books we published and the stories we told during the past two years. We thank all of the writers and artists who lent their talents to our endeavor and especially thank readers who came along for the ride. DC Comics remains committed to publishing diverse material for diverse audiences as we continue to welcome new readers.” DC pulling the plug on Minx
