I usually do, I'd rather judge using the cover than waste my time reading the first chapter of something I probably won't like anyways.

I normally don't unless I read a title pick it up and see the cover and its clear that its Yaoi then i chuck it and run away lol not really just don't like Yaoi. Otherwise I usually read the summary first to see if it would interest me or not

Yes I find art and the tone of the cover very important. The cover itself should make a statement of the tone, seriousness and the content inside the graphic novel.

It's not sad at all. Of course you can't judge a whole plot and characters by it's cover. But regarding comic books in general covers do serve the purpose of telling the viewer just in one picture what genre/type of story/seriousness/tone of the comic. For example, I see a pink manga comic with an excited school girl with big eyes holding on to some boy I know for sure that it's not the type I'm looking for, it's told me straight away that this book contains some romance and probably aimed for girls. But if there's panty shots and cleavage, you know full well that's going to be inside. Front covers are there for a reason, to help us make a judgement of what we're buying

It's only natural that we'd judge manga by it's cover. It's not just the storyline with manga, it's the art too. If the art style is awful, I won't read it.

I know its a bad habit, but if the cover is too cheesy or bad, it kills my interest in the manga >__>

I always judge it on the artstyle, theres just particulair artstyles i dont like... But i wouldnt say the cover looks boring, and ill always check a bit further into the manga to see if the artstyle is really the same through the whole chapter.
