Dark Horse’s store is a notable addition to the world of digital comics for a few reasons. The price for a single comic is a maximum of $1.49 across the line, significantly lower than DC’s max of $2.99 and Marvel’s max of $3.99. Rather than offering single issues alone, as most major digital comics publishers do right now, Dark Horse is offering readers a choice of three types of items: comics, discounted bundles of comics, and graphic novels.

This week DC announced a new title - with a difference. Boys, stay away from this one - it’s for girls only. Hot on the heels of Marvel’s “Year of Women” specials, which included titles such as the mini-series Her-Oes , DC is getting ready to launch the girl-friendly Capes and Cakes.
All these attempts to make “girl comics” sound really stupid and still smacks of boys making “girl” comics. I don’t know, there’s gotta be a better way to pull this off people.
