It may have taken an age, but I've finally published the results of a questionnaire we created for primary school children asking them about the comics and magazines they read, and more.

I was at the Dundee Comics Day on Sunday and 3 of the 4 finalists had created female characters (though none of the cartoonists were girls!). I thought that was interesting.

That is fantastic - good work. Pat is both a good sport and great value, interviews with him are a must-read.

The future is looking positively exciting regarding Pat Mills and girls' comics. Please see my latest blog entry, a Q&A with the man himself – the future looks rosy indeed...

Pat Mills has always pushed girls comics.

From an interview with Pat Mills:

 

I’d love it to go back to the roots of 2000 AD, and I think it will probably be digital comics that will do it. I’ve been doing a fair bit of work on this for various people and I did a straw poll on digital girls’ comics, as in how they would appeal to an audience not that different in its age group to the original 2000 AD audience – more or less 8-12 years old. The response was very positive, so we’re hoping that will go forward – what I’m thinking is mystery, suspense, the occult… Stephen King-style girls’ comics.
I think I previously suggested he might be the man to speak to about this, now I definitely think he is.
