Matt Thorn's Comics Questionnaire 

I invite everyone to fill out this questionnaire and comics and manga. Matt is cultural anthropologist, who has a particular interest in shoujo (girls) manga. He has already interviewed many people in Japan on their reading habits, and is now trying to get a feel for people in other countries. The preliminary results, already have some interesting statistics. It'll be interesting to see what else can be deducted if more results come in.

Thorn also has some other good resources on his site, such as a history of american romance comics and essays on shoujo. This exerpted article looks to be interesting as well, about the domination of the doujinshi market by girls.

Thanks to Libby for e-mailing me to remind me about the questionnaire. I saw it posted in several places but then forgot to post about it.
