"I’m not, nor have I ever been, a teenage girl." 

"DC’s new Minx imprint has been a source of intense industry conversation since it was announced as the company’s new, concerted effort to get girls to read comics (well, comics published by DC, rather than manga). It’s hard to evaluate how well the line does in meeting its goal as I’m not, nor have I ever been, a teenage girl.
But it certainly seems like (Good as Lily) should hit the target audience. The story reads like young-adult fiction with a teen-movie accent, and the art resembles something between manga (black and white, digest-sized, occasional use of the Eastern visual lexicon) and Western original graphic novels. "
