Girls in Comics - Children's Edition


When you hear the words, "comic books", you'll probably think of characters like Spiderman, Batman, or Ash from Pokémon. Now close your eyes, and try to think of a girl who's been the star of your comic book reading. Having trouble thinking of one besides Wonder Woman? If so, here are some of my favourite juvenile graphic novels either written and/or illustrated by women, or featuring an awesome girl as the main character. I'm always happy to hear about new amazing girls in comics, so if you see one that should be added to the list, by all means leave me a comment!
