What do you think of a girl that likes comic books?

I've always loved superheroes. My dad won't buy any for me, so sometimes the guy at the store close to my home will let me look at some.

Is that strange?

It's always men in there, sometimes i feel like i'm intruding...

  • Love them. It's not strange, and you're not intruding. Sure, the old stereotype that mostly men are nerds/geeks may still hold up some places, but that's been rapidly disappearing in the last couple decades. There are so many women who like comics, science fiction, fantasy, anime, taking, etc. Plus it makes you super attractive to a lot of guys who are also into geeky things, because it gives you a common interest.

    BUT, most importantly, get into whatever you are interested in for your own sake, regardless of whatever other people think.

    Oh, and you can find some comics in graphic novel or trade paperback form at your library, so you could still read some that way. If you want any recommendations, let me know what comics you're into already, and I'll give you my best suggestions.

    • No one can ever stop me from reading them!

      Green Lantern, Superman, and Wonder Woman are my favorites.

  • There’s literally a huge franchise of movies making billions of dollars every year about comic books.

    Do you think boys are the only ones driving all those sales? 😜

  • a lot of women see it as a child's hobby. But having an imagination is always crucial especially to keep a relationship thriving.
    Comic Books are a tool to keep your imagination going same as reading books.
    I say ignore people's opinions on something you enjoy.
    Unless your hurting people.

    • Good comparison! Thanks.

    • People just need to understand our hobbies reflect who we are and what we want and how we do things.
      Everything contributes to the overall you

  • Always liked superheroes, never found myself following the lore and fandom of them though. Comic books are cool but nothing that would get me excited, unless if the person has a massive comic collection lol.

    • I get that!

      Sometimes i have to look up online to keep up, and I'm like, ah man, I REALLY want to read the story of what happened... But no money!

    • Oh the joys of never having enough money, many of us are all too familiar. 😂😂

  • I would think that it's great she found a hobby! Superheroes, comics, figurines, and all that never quite appealed to me, but I appreciate them for the art they are.

    • Very mature of you!

    • Yeah you can never be sure how people react! That's why i rather just avoid a confrontation.

    • As a stoner who smokes every day, let me tell you that weed isn't good for you. I wouldn't say it's the worst thing in the world you can do, but it's not good either. You say a prick is a prick, and then you make excuses for pricks because they had it hard growing up as a nerd. So what? I was bullied, as were many nerds, not everyone resorts to a superiority complex to feel good about themselves, and having such a complex makes it very difficult to interact with the person. I refuse to make excuses for someone's terrible attitude/personality just because they are a nerd and maybe had a rough time that caused them to be this way.

  • Comics are not gender specific. although more males prefer to buy them I don't see how u should feel like an intruder. ur there for the same purpose. don't think of it that much

  • Some people might find it strange, nothing wrong with it though. I've been hanging out in a hobby store that sells comic books a bit this past couple months (I have to drive 2 hours to go there, so I don't go that often. Small towns suck.) And I've seen a couple of girls there, It's refreshing tbh, I wish, and I think many other nerdy guys wish, that more girls would be into these hobbies. To be fair I go there to play a game called warhammer 40k, not to read comics, so it's a more social thing and everyone kind of wants more people to play the game in general.

  • Honestly, nothing. It's just a hobby for anyone, regardless of gender. If anything, I'd like that a girl (in a relationship with) is into comic books because I am a comic book nerd myself and we could be reading so many comic books graphic novels of The Punisher (one of my favorite Marvel Anti-Heroes).
