Judging A Book By Its Cover. Columnist Kyrax2 at Comics Bulletin uses the Buffy comics as an example of a way to attract non-traditional fans (i.e., the female gender) to superhero comics and to get the comics industry out of its slump.
"If most women aren't buying superhero comics, it's because the companies that make said comics, namely Marvel and DC, aren't making comics they want to read."
She argues that hypersexualizing women in superhero comics will lead to continuing erosion of their already slumping popularity. She also includes examples from OddityCollector of what comics covers might look like if male superheroes were hypersexualized. Too funny.
