I have!!!
I went to Borders and saw D.Gray Man. My guy friend told me to check it out, but when i saw the cover, "This is what he want me to read!?!?!?! The cover looks so blank"
I'm now watching the Anime, and it's okay, for the mean time. lol

Have you ever judged a manga by its cover?

Better question, when haven't I judged a manga by its cover? I'm extremely critical and picky with the manga I choose to read...

I'm not sure if it could really be considered judgment, as I've never actually decided that a manga was bad based on its cover. It's more of a matter of interest.

If I go in looking to buy a manga and I don't have one in particular in mind, the only chance a manga has to capture my attention is an interesting cover. When it comes to selling a book, the cover can be a very important part. It's the first thing a consumer is going to notice, and it needs to make a good impression.

That being said, I won't just buy a book because of its cover. I'll usually peruse its contents before making my decision.

Yup. I don't usually read it if the art is bad, but I will if someone tells me its really good.

yeah, i actually think it's a habit i should break though since alot of manga is really good but has less than average art

i did before. but now, i don't.
after reading Silver(Fujita Kazuko), i've been hooked onto manga drawing styles like hers. they may not be appealing to others but to me they are. the characters are mature looking, which i like and the plot is great.
Tenma no Ketsuzoku is also similar in drawing style. i love the plot as well, the romance is sweet, and the chapters so far are really great. i'd have to say these two mangas are in my top 10.
