What is more important to you?  To me, art is more important!  I want great art, I don't care how great the story is if the art sucks I don't want it.  I would say Art 80%/ story 20
%.  Now don't misunderstand me either I want a great story too but not a the sacrifice of the artwork!  If I want to read a bestselling novel, I would ( I read around 24 novels a year).  I buy comics for the artwork but I am curious what/how other fans fell on this.  That is why I am not that impressed when they get big name authors to write the story especially if that means they are going to cut corners on the art, something I think Marvel has been doing lately because the big name artist haven't been drawing for them as much!

Both. If a comic has bad art, I think it can take away from the story, and no matter how pretty your pictures are, they can't save a crappy story.

The Art... there is some artwork done in comics that is so hideous it will distract me from actually reading the captions sometimes...

Usually the story is far more important to me, though I find anything "illustrated" by Greg Land completely unreadable.
