Yes. Art is a big part of manga. If the art sucks you might find yourself avoiding the manga.

Well, if it has got two, long, thin, string armed guys
rubbing each other's chests, I probably pass it or just
take a peek and put it away.

I try not to judge anything by its cover, but sometimes I do buy something because the cover looked really interesting to me. While good cover doesn't guarantee good manga, I've discoverd some of my favourite mangas (Le Chevalier d'Eon, Bleach and Sergeant Frog to name a few) just because I was interested by their cover art and decided to give them a chance.

Super Cruel and Terrible Tales of Mangaka has an ugly cover and art, but it's still a great read.

As long as it's a demographic/genre I'm interested in and doesn't have skinny CLAMP designed boys touching each other, I'll at least try 1 or 2 chapters before deciding.

Well, I use the cover to decide if I like the art and that's about it - I go by the description on the back, usually. You know, the thing that actually tells you about the manga.

No. Unless it's yaoi/hardcore hentai, I at least read the description, and usually the first 1-2 chapters.

Definitely... I'm super picky about the art. (And I have exquisite taste... lol)

so it's okay if it's yuri or shonen-ai?

Maybe. bigrazz I'm all about the emotions and relationships, so... if it has something to offer, yeah, I guess.
