When you take a first glance on the cover of a comic or read the first pages, what is it that get's you hooked or interested? For me personally it is the prospect of a great story or just the artstyle itself. Please tell me what you find interesting in a new comic that you're getting into.

I'd say that subject matter and tone are probably the biggest things that get me interested in a comic. Artwork/style would be a close second.

I'm more likely to be interested in fantasy or sci-fi stories although I will read other genres as well.

i'm interested in anything that has a nice atmosphere, i'll read something just because i like the characters and want to see more from them

or anything that can surprise me, i tend to guess whats going to happen ahead of time most of the time in plots, i don't hate things that are predictable, but anything that can catch me off guard instantly gets my attention

Story..story...story.

Plus, I am weak when it comes to an awesome bit of cover work/design.

Having a distinct, memorable cast really helps, along with an emphasis on interesting/funny character interaction among them.

It also helps a lot if worldbuilding exposition is pared down to what the characters know and care about.

One of the comics that hooked me the fastest was Job Satisfaction, a charming comic about demon summoners getting by with houseguests and bad clients.

Pretty art, funny writing, or both.

When trying a new comic, if it doesn't grab me immediately, I'll read at least the first 20 strips. If you don't get to a good hook by that point -- even if the summary sounded cool and exciting -- I'm out.

Interesting designs, characters and setting, I'd say.

For me the most important thing is the story and the characters. Even if the artwork is sub-par I'll read the comic till the end if the story and characters are captivatiting enough. Although there are some comics I buy just for the beautiful art- example Jim Lee.
