Write About Comics? Do I Have the Survey for You!

So you write about comics in a professional or semi-professional (even quasi-maybe-sort-of-professional) capacity. So you’re interested in what other comics journalists and critics really think about the industry and its future.

Well, you should definitely fill out this survey! The first of (at least) two, this survey aims to get some basic data about the demographics of those who write about comics and their general attitudes toward and beliefs about the industry and its future.

The survey is and will anonymous. Data will be packaged and published on this very site. Follow up surveys will use the results of this one, and your comments, to go deeper into particular questions.

* I’m not a trained researcher so any criticisms of my methodology, such as it is, will be appreciated and taken on board.

    (Adjusts monocle) I’m not sure I have time away from counting all my bazillions of comic journalism & gaming to do a survey, Ms. Purdy. Perhaps you could leave it with my butler. /s

      *adjusts monocle too* By jove, Lady Richardson, even a moment of your time, which surely could be better spent swimming in your doubloons, would be a tremendous honour. That you would favour my survey with your attention, why, surely all of the filthy rich comics journalists will follow suit.
