It’s a cliché but nonetheless true: women in comic book stores are just as rare as a politician who doesn’t lie. At least in the Netherlands that seems to be the case, I am not sure about the rest of the world when it comes to girls and comic books.
When I visited the beautiful town of Edinburgh a while ago, I was happily surprised to find Kirsty in Deadhead comics. A woman in a comic book store running the show? And a Spider-Man fan at that. So you understand I had to ask her some questions… What does she like so much about Spidey and what kind of comics do women pick up?
