DC Comics has announced the ending to its "experimental" line of graphic novels, MINX , which catered exclusively to teenage girls. The series bega in 2007 and included titles ranging from The Plain Janes and Janes In Love , which followed around an art-obsessed group of cool misfits, to Water Baby , a graphic novel about a punky surfer babe who had her leg bit off by a shark. Most of the titles were under $10, a steal in the pricey Western graphic novel market but on par with the prices of girl-focused mangas like Paradise Kiss . Sad news for female comics fans and lovers of innovative graphic novels. [GalleyCat ]
