Simple yes/no poll from ahoaho this time around. Do you ever get tired about manga? I must admit, I do...Sometimes, whatever I read just gets boring, and something more exciting catches my attention (like a game or a novel).

You can discuss this on our forums here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=7338

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you read comics (American, European, etc) as well?
Choices:
Yes - votes: 3139 (33%)
No - votes: 5563 (58.5%)
I would like to try, but they're not available at all for me - votes: 804 (8.5%)
There were 9506 total votes.
The poll ended: August 23rd 2008

Well, as expected to me, "no" is more popular. But we still got a sizable amount that says "yes". Some of the comics in the newspapers are quite amusing. And there's always been the recent influx of comic readers because of movies like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or even something like Wanted...
As for the 804 people that voted that they're not available but would still like to read them, you're not looking hard enough on the internet. You can find comics on the net just like manga...

Ack! I thought you just meant comics as in Marvel and not newspaper. I would have put yes then...>.>

"And there's always been the recent influx of comic readers because of movies like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or even something like Wanted..." Actually, I started reading comics after I'd been reading manga for a long time. So some people might have also wanted to expand their horizans. ;)

58% Manga snobs? I'm shocked. You folks need to widen your horizons because you are missing out on some amazing stuff from the rest of the world.

It reminds me of comic readers who snub manga. There are great books on both sides but neither give them a chance.

I dont read the typical American comics ppl think of, like superhero related at all. I like something funny and stuff like that, I read Archie and Sonic the Hedgehog, I am happy to own the entire Archie Sonic series smile I also like collecting old funny comic books, I have a ton of them mostly thanks to them being scanned but it's fun. I like a lot of manga too so I don't limit myself to just one particular type.

Every couple of months I need a rest from reading Manga. So I raid my brothers comic folder since he is more Comics then Manga.

i actually started readingcomics way before i ever even heard of manga. Ilove manga but DC Comics is where my heart is. Don't get me wrong i'm not saying that American comics are better than Manga or the other way around but jsut that it's what i grew up on. I was sayign up up and away way before yankees were saying kamehameha smile
