Comic Book Collectors Club Member Survey for Ohio University Journalism Class

Our site has been assigned as a research project to the students of Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism by the obviously cool teacher of the Strategic Communication Research and Theory class. The students have been assigned to look into the comic book collector consumer audience to learn more about the comic book collector demographic. They already interviewed me, but I guess they also need to talk to some normal people. Help the next generation of journalism students earn an A by participating in this anonymous survey. Your name will be kept confidential.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: There were two typos in the original survey brought to my attention by one member, which I have since hopefully corrected. This is due to your editor typing too late at night and not a reflection on the journalism students.)

“What kind of a name is E.W. Scripps? They should change it to the J. Jonah Jameson School of Journalism–has a better ring to it, more J’s–can never have too many J’s in one name, is my philosophy. . .Miss Brant, issue a press release: mounting public outcry for journalism school recognizing greatest living publisher. . .”
