What is Manifold's favorite print comic?
closes Oct 8
Calvin & Hobbes
Watchmen - Alan Moore
Donald Duck
xkcd: volume 0
Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney

On my upcoming survey, I will ask respondents to rate all the comics that are options here as either "Excellent", "Good", "Okay", "Bad", or "Haven't read". This will only include submissions that I can verify are actually print comics, meaning they were originally published in print format. This would include comic books, graphic novels, newspaper comic strips, etc.

Each comic will get a score based on the total number of points from each response. A rating of "Excellent" counts as 2 points, "Good" counts as 1, "Bad" counts as -1, and the other two options count as 0. The comic that gets the highest total score wins. If multiple comics are tied for the best score, this will resolve to all of them equally.

See Plasma's Manifold Survey for other questions about the survey.

Edit: The survey is officially out! You can take it here: https://forms.gle/xZqWVxuY5irgLigu9

This also means that new responses to this market won't be considered.

Hm, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a bit of an edge case, but it maybe counts as a graphic novel. Everyone on Discord who has answered so far seems to think it shouldn't count, though. What do the traders think?

I'm cool with removing it. I've never actually read it! I was researching popular graphic novels and saw this,

"Today’s pick is Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a much-loved funny graphic novel series about a middle schooler who illustrates his life in a notebook-style diary." - https://readingmiddlegrade.com/books-like-diary-of-a-wimpy-kid/

Hence why I .made it a choice. Someone else called it a graphic novel. If you disagree with them, remove it. Otherwise, it fits the criteria. Your call and I'm in agreement since I am only calling it a graphic novel bc it was it was referred to as one - not bc I have read it and truly believe it to be graphic novel. 🤷‍♂️

@33 Okay, I won't include it then. As someone who has actually read it, I never thought of it as a graphic novel, and even if it is, it would probably be considered a "graphic novel that isn't a comic".

@33 And yeah, my initial agreement was based on looking up whether people consider it to be a graphic novel and finding that same article, but that's probably not a good methodology because looking up something like that is going to find me the few sources that consider it to be a graphic novel and not the many sources that don't.
