Comics for Younger Readers with Female Leads

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 1.40.31 PM

My local comic shop contacted me recently, requesting some ideas for parents who come in asking for comics “for girls.” Now, we all know that good comics can be enjoyed by both boys and girls, but I understand the intention of the question. Often girls don’t see themselves represented in mainstream superhero comics or product tie-in comics that many boys enjoy. To that end, I put together a list of comics featuringĀ female lead characters. I have divided the list into younger readers (up to age 8) and middle grade readers (ages 8-12), but these age ranges are approximate. These comics are all kid favorites and both girls and boys will enjoy them.
