John (oopsie!) has some good manga links, and one thing he points out is Augie's WWW report. I saw someone quote his take on that one disasterous DC panel, but I never got around to reading the whole thing. To steal Sean's quotes:
TokyoPop set up a little reading library with bean bags, chairs, and sample issues to read through.Augie also mentions that female attendance in general was up, and that a lot of them were doing things like art or going through back-issue bins, not just as girlfriends dragged along for the ride. This is such a positive thing! The more of an equal representation we have the fanbase and industry, the the better things will be. It has been WAY too lopsided for a loong time now.
The few times I passed by the TokyoPop booth, it [the male/female ratio] seems to be about 80/20 in favor of the women hanging around.
