Sean McKeever's Mary Jane, Mary Jane: Homecoming and Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane are outstanding all-ages friendly comics.

From Image, years ago there is a trade call Leave it to Chance. Think Harry Potter is a girl. Right now there is a Young Nancy Drew. Single issue storylines.

And Free Comic Book Day, there is one called Molly Danger.

I have a 10 year old daughter, and while I would love for her to read more, so far all of my attempts have failed, but I have done research.

My 8 year old love PRINCELESS!, put out by action lab comics, they put out a 4 issue series last year, that is now out in trade. And the 1st issue of a second series just came out. I read all of the first trade, I really liked it. Very empowering for little girls.

She also really liked the Amulet series of tpbs.

And she hasn't read it yet, but BONE is awesome.

My daughter is 18 now and "too old" for comics but when she was a tween she liked a bunch of stuff.

Recommended:
Powerpuff Girls
Oh My Goddess!
Leave it to Chance
Bone
Pokemon

Sorry, some of this is kind of dated but that is what Jasmine read. And like SwiftMann said, the Mary Jane books are great. There's also some pretty good Archie titles out now.

I guess I have exactly doubled the age of being too old for comics then...lol

It could be worse...I'm at 3.5 times that age.


The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.
Comics Castle-AKA Pat McCauslin
Alpha Comics--ComicVortex--Comic Cellar--Hall of Heroes--Swifty's Olde Tyme Comic Shoppe

I think Little Lulu would be both age-appropriate for your daughter, and entertaining to her. Dark Horse published a bunch of these in trade paperback over the last five years or so.

Archie comics might be worth a try, though there are a couple of caveats: (1) Newer Archie stories I've seen haven't struck me as having particularly high quality in writing or art. Fortunately, even forty-year-old Archie comics can be quite affordable. You also might try to find the trade paperback Archie Americana Series: Best of the Forties. It's genuinely hilarious. (2) Your daughter might be just a little too young yet to get the appeal. Within two years, though, I'll bet the competition between Betty and Veronica over Archie will be really appealing to her.
