    No problem! It's the website I publish novels at and will soon publish comics at too.

    Golf is another cool idea. Not sure how well it would translate into a comic though.

    I have a list on paper I am working on, so while noir isn't on the poll it is on the one on paper. I agree though, noir mystery and supernatural are awesome.

    Why don't they try a cooking comic, maybe based on Master Chef TV series or something.
    There are lot of cooking manga such as Yakitate Japan, Iron Wok Jan, Bambino, A Delicious Relationship, Addicted to Curry, Chūka Ichiban!, Dungeon Meshi

    Yeah that would be another cool thing. It hink there is one called Shokugeki no Soma or something, and it's awesome.

    Not sure how well that would translate or how much interest there would be in a less kinetic sport like golf, but I have no doubt it can be done. Over at the Image forum there've been several mentions of people getting into American Football thanks to Southern Bastards - despite no previous interest. Surely that could be done with golf too.

    I think Oni Press published the entirety of James Stokoe's "Wonton Soup" for a relatively western example. But that still leans heavily on manga influences.

    Most of the jungle adventures from the early 1940's to the late 1960's were set in Africa.

    Now the post-colonial Africa has become the birthplace of AIDS, Ebola and other nasty viruses, and also has wars, civil wars, coups d'etat, corruption, high crime rate, poverty, starvation, famine and pestilence run rampant.

    Lee Falk's Phantom is still in circulation, isn't it?

    Westerns are interesting, I loved the deadlands rpg setting but more straightforward ones with gunslinging and cowboys would be cool. Jungle adventures in the vein of Indiana jones would be neat

    Yeah, to do jungle adventures or comics set in Africa it would be better to set them in the early or mid 1900s.

    I love the idea of mixing pulp and noir. By young adult adventure do you mean adventure with teenagers or do you mean adventure for that demographic?

    Kinda depends on the angle of the story though; if you only focus on these negatives it might not work. But that's not an accurate representation of the entire continent though. 7 of the world's 10 fastest growing economies are in Africa right now. Think how advanced South Africa looked in Age of Ultron. Plus comics can be fantastical so you don't have to get swept up in the negative press the continent mainly seems to get. A comic like No Mercy (at Image) has taken a modern jungle story approach and it works pretty well.

    Also found these two cool looking Africa-based comics in the Kickstarter thread:

    Kariba
    looks gorgeous, a lot of adventure, action with crocodiles etc.

    Is'nana the Were-Spider
    looks a lot darker in terms of tone, but is based on a West-African (I think?) folk tale character.

    I voted Villain's Perspective , It seems like the idea was burned out. But I would like to see a more Story Driven "Crossed" type comic centered around a Villain in the same vein as " The Darkness".

    Both.
    Mostly adventure with late teens or twenty-somethings for the young adult demographic. And if it's good, it'll have crossover appeal to other demographics.
    I'd say somewhere between the Middle Grade stuff like Lumberjanes or Gotham Academy and the more mature New Adult stuff like DC's main superhero line.

    I'd like to see a new auto racing comic based on NASCAR or similar to the Speed Racer cartoon. There were auto racing comics published in 1950-1960's mainly by Charlton Comics.

    When will they make a comic about gambling similar to the Gamble Fish manga?

    What about a Ballroom dancing comic? I have read the manga Ballroom e Youkouso which means "Welcome to the Ballroom" and it is darn good.

    How does a comic about ballet dancing sound to you? The mangaka called "Cuvie" has made a ballet dancing manga called Kenrantaru Grande Scène (The Magnificent Grand Scene).

    Or a comic about music similar to the manga Nodame Cantabile?

    Or a comic about cocktails similar to the manga Bartender

    Or a comic about wines similar to the manga Drops of God

    I would also like to see a comic about recreational fishing. There was a manga called Grander Musashi, focused on fishing. Fawcett Comics made a similar comic called "Bob Swift, Boy Sportsman" in 1951.
