That'll change years from now, when more teens discover comics(series like the Walking Dead and 30 Days of Night were favorites among some people that I knew in high school that weren't comic fans, but just nerds, in general).
I agree. There are TONS of great titles that teens could probably get into. I just don't think they're aimed/marketed at teens.
The Walking Dead would be a cool example. I like the fact that there is an 18+ mentality that goes with the "mature readers" fact because it really pushes the teens who watch shows like Entourage and (whatever violent shows HBO plays nowadays).
When I was in high school my favourite show was Oz. I would have loved a comic like 100 Bullets then (I still do today).
