Committed: Survey – Vote for the Best & Worst Super Hero / Villain Movie Casting

terence-stamp-supermanThis weekend I got together with a group of old friends and asked which superhero had been cast most egregiously, and which were the best embodiment of the heroes and villains depicted. The impassioned discussion went on all evening, everyone had their own nominations for the title but no one was able to agree, and so I’m opening the voting up for you. We put together our 15 top choices (in no particular order) for the best superhero casting, best super villain casting, worst superhero casting, and worst super villain casting. Please choose and rank your top three choices out of each of the four sections.

Take the quick, 4 question survey here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XYDPPQT and please share it with your friends!

Note: The rules we came up with are as follows;

  1. We only considered actors in live-action superhero movies (as opposed to television specials or cartoons).
  2. The only movies which count are ones which have been made and released (rather than movies which were cast but then never actually produced, or movies which haven’t been released yet, even though there are some juicy ones coming).
  3. And finally, this is only choosing the best and worst superhero and super villain casting choices (because if we expand this to cover all of the casting in superhero movies this survey would never be finished).

Check Comics Should Be Good in a week or two I’ll post the results.

Note: These nominations are clearly personal and you’re welcome to discuss your own thoughts in the comment section below.

Committed: Survey – Comic Gifts

Happy new year! It’s time for the first survey of 2014 and this time I want to know if you gave or got any comic book gifts. There are only 8 questions, (and then for each “yes” there are a couple of questions about whether the gift worked or not). You’ll see, it’s pretty basic and should only take about a minute to fill out.

The survey closes at the end of the day on Tuesday the 7th of January (in 6 days) so that there is time to collect the results and design an infographic based on them. (Check out previous infographics based on reader surveys here and here.)

It’d be great to find out how many of us are spreading and getting the comic book love, so please share this with as many people as you can.

Committed: The ComiXology Reader Survey

As part of my job as a graphic designer, I created a infographic for comiXology based on information gathered in their recent reader survey. Some of the results were quite surprising (and others weren’t), enjoy!

Committed: How Do Comic Books Impact Your Relationships?

A couple of weeks ago, the first survey we conducted told us a lot about how our reading has evolved over time. The next thing I’d like to explore is how comic book reading affects the people we care about.

Over the last decade or so, I’ve become increasingly aware of how my interest in this (supposedly) light-weight medium has disproportionately impacted other people’s perception of me. Whether it was as a child, (when other girls found it strange that I read “boys” comics) or as a adult (when people I dated labeled my interests “juvenile”). These days I’m very lucky that the people close to me understand the creative potential of this medium and appreciate my enthusiasm for it.

I’ve put together a short survey of only 7 questions which should help us get a picture of how the people we care about see our interest. It will be up for the next 6 days for you to answer, and to repost for other comic book readers. At the end of Tuesday next week, I’ll close the survey to collect the results and design an infographic from them (see last week’s results for an example of how this can look).

As always, all of the answers will be completely anonymous and I will have no way to know who answered what, so feel free to be completely honest!

Please repost this and share it, let’s try to get as many replies as we can, from as large an audience as possible. Thank you in advance for your input.

Committed: Survey – How Has Your Reading Changed?

My last article touched on the changes in the way I enjoy comic books, and it is something I’ve often discussed here. It always elicits interesting responses, particularly those of solidarity, which left me wondering about how your reading habits are evolving.

There is a massive disparity between the way I consumed comic books as a child, and the way that I do now, in terms of buying methods, changes in disposable income, free time to read, and what kind of subject matter I choose, as well as my own changing perception of comic books themselves and how that has affected my own enjoyment of them.

Now it is time to reach out and gather information about your changing reading habits and so I’ve compiled a short survey of only 10 very basic questions. From this I’ll be able to design an infographic (something I frequently do for clients, but I’ve never been able to do so for us, so this will be a first!) and next week we can look at the results together and ask some follow up questions for the next infographic…

Please pass this on to as many people as you can this week, I’d love to get a nice, big selection of answers from all sorts of people. Thank you!

(Note: All of the results and information gathered from you in this survey will be entirely anonymous.)
