Read this: Image rescues two Minx titles

2011: It's both Year of the Rabbit and Year of the Saving Teen-Girl-Centric Comics From Oblivion!

Back in 2007, DC Comics took a shot at creating YA-style raphic novels for girls under an imprint called Minx. The effort was shuttered very quickly - the exact reasons for which will probably be debated until the sun explodes. Despite the disappointing sales numbers, some of the books received critical acclaim, and many in the comics community were left wondering what would become of the announced-but-never-published titles.

Well, the world can wonder a little less, because Image has rescued two titles originally slated for the Minx line: Poseurs and All Nighter. Fans of Young Adult fiction, rejoice!
