I have a 13 year old niece who is forever glued to technology and developing seemingly more and more pessimism as each day passes.
For her Christmas present I would like to purchase her a One-shot, TPB, or otherwise collection or single story.
The hope is to galvanise in her an interest in comic books... In other words you could say I'm attempting to court her into the comics industry.
The trouble I'm having is that I can't think a book that will really to the job; it's like if she was a he this would be an easy task. I'm looking at my shelf and just from the books in front of me there's a number that a teenage boy would think is awesome...
So what I want to know is: What would you think of buying if you was doing this?
Some guidelines: Can't be Too gory (a little is okay if it's appropriate in context, just not gore for the sake of gore). Preferably has a strong female lead. Can't be Too sexualised (same situation as gore). Has to be classic and awesome.
