I like to watch Comics books . well i don't know the author 's name. i wan't to the best author in comics field.
let's watch TV shows Online Click here
I think "Covers" and possibly "Story" should be added to the mix. I'm influenced by "buzz", but the majority of non-big-two comics I have ever bought are comics I never heard about until I was in the shop the day I bought them. The first thing that pulls me in? Covers. Now, that wouldn't be my answer. My answer would be "Story", or "Synopsis/Blurb". The cover grabs me, then the synopsis wins me over or makes me say, "eh".
Of the choices here, I went with character(s). Basically because it's closest to story of the given choices.
I'm more likely to buy a comic based on a writer than the art, but that still rarely happens. If I have to choose, I'd choose great writing and passable art rather than vice versa. Being a writer myself, I may be biased. And, not to disrespect these guys, but I don't think I've ever bought a book because of the inks(unless subconsciously), colors, or especially, letters. These are vital pieces to the creative team that are greatly under-appreciated. I'm guilty of said under-appreciating myself, sadly
I think we forgot a story option
There are a couple of writers I will pick up even without knowing anything about the book itself: Neil Gaiman (unfortunately not a whole lot comics these days), Warren Ellis (same here), and as far as publishers go, I'm still a sucker for Vertigo.
And I'm more and more interested in independent books...
New to the forum, and this is my first post. I figured it might be a good neutral place to start.
When I buy a comic (or tradePB) it's usually after a thorough review of everything the book has to offer. Of course, I think the cover and general presentation is what draws me in at first. I read mostly small press/indy stuff so those usually have quite a creative approach to the overall design of the book.
If something catches my eye, I read the blurb on the back (if it has one), and that will usually tell me enough to know if I'd enjoy the story. Regardless, I'll always start paging through the whole book to get a general feel for everything it has to offer. I'm seeing if I can "read" the story easily without actually having read any of the text. I also just like to look at the artwork because I enjoy art so much. But if the stars align, and I start thinking that maybe I want to buy the book, that's when I'll start reading the first few pages. If I can't put it down, and I really want to keep reading, then I know I'm going to buy it.
There have a been a few rare exceptions to this though. "Dr. McNinja" is a recent one. My regular comic-guy told me the title, I saw Dr. McNinja was riding a rainbow motorcycle on the cover, and it was ridiculous enough to peak my interest immediately.
I think there's a sort of magic to finding a new comic. It's very personal and it's a different experience for everyone.
Inkers are the unsung heroes of comics. I have a lot of respect for inkers, too, because I can't ink very well at all... So, to be fair, penciler + inker combo is what draws me to the art of a book. I can actually recall several times where I didn't purchase a book because the inks made it unreadable. I can also recall a few random books I've picked up just because the inks were so stunning. It's a shame inkers don't get as much recognition.
For the most part I get a comic for the story, so I voted writer - but I really can't read a comic with bad art either. If the art is bad, the story has to be that much better, to the point that I can zone the art out and still enjoy it. If the art is amazing, and the story is horrible, I'll zone out on the story and just see it visually - but that's only if the art is blowing my mind.
I guess my stance is that I buy the comic for the product - the combination of everyone's efforts. There are writers that will make me buy a product (Scott Snyder for example) and artists (Jock, say). But I think that for a comic to really be worth it it has to be a team effort (The Black Mirror). That's the good stuff. A good team.
Usually I didn't read comics but I like some of books that make me smile but unfortunately I didn't know the name of author.
