Reading. Well I'm reading this thread, so I guess we can classify manga and comic as the same, right?

I would count it as reading

Does it have narrative? Does it have a Plot? Does it involve glancing at paper? Does it involve language and understanding? _____ If you answer yes to any of these it qualifies as reading.

I assume so. Neil Gaiman writes graphic novels, and I hear Stephen King reads them every now and then, so they should count for something.

It's reading. But generally a manga will have a lower word count than a novel, so you would be reading less. Comics and manga obviously provide visual representation of what is going on, while in a book you have to imagine, so there is less mental work required to make sense of the story.

True, but sometimes, people want to see/imagine what the writer and/or artist had in mind. I feel that this is partly why we have two completely different character designs for Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The Bill Skarsgård Pennywise is much closer to the one originally described in Stephen King's It.

Yeah, it's definitely nice to see someone else's interpretation of a story.
