  1. Hey guys, I'm in the middle of a research project for my BS degree in a foreign university. My topic is how the medium of comic literature is and can be utilized as a tool for globalization by educating masses and creating awareness among them on different social and religious issues, and hence, bridging the gap b/w various nations and cultures. It focuses on the immense scope and demand of comic literature, produced locally, in either the Islamic or underdeveloped countries of the third-world. Now, I just came across this blog for the first time and feel really sorry for finding it so late cos my submission deadline is within a week. I want to conduct a small 5-min survey and hope I'll be able to obtain a few answers.

    Please write your name, age and nationality on the top of your answer.


    1. What comics/comic books do u like to read? Give specific names.

    2. Have u always been interested in the same type of comics or did your taste change
    over time?

    3. Are you aware of any current Pakistani comic sequel/comic book/graphic novel?
    Which ones do u read and why? Give specific names of as many as u know, along
    with a short commentary on the ones you like (or even dislike).

    4. Have you ever come across any serious critical work on comic literature (in either
    Urdu or English) done in Pakistan by a Pakistani writer?

    Please provide as much information in your answers as you can and also recommend this survey to your friends. :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Shakeba Syed.
