Ann Nocenti: "I think that women do love comics, and a lot of women like superheroes, but perhaps there's something to the fact that the genre itself is an action genre. Big things have to happen, and conflicts have to be resolved, violently, with lots of action. That's the genre. That's the formula. It would be nice if comics could slow it down a little bit. You know, not all conflict has to be resolved with violence, but figure out more meandering ways to work in the form so that perhaps the appeal to women would widen." (Marvel; DC Comics; Marvel)
