A little user experience poll for comic authors. I'm curious which option has the majority.

I'd love to have a quick link to the comic profile in the drop down, personally!

I'm not a creator but keep it consistent. Cover to profile, edit button to management.

Consistency is definitely a big part of it - the cover linking to anything other than the profile anywhere feels wrong. Plus, I need the profile much more often than I need Manage, and especially more often than I need Manage Webcomic Profile - that's something I need once every few months, at best.

I agree. I was pretty irritated when I tried out the new drop-down menu.

From your comic-profile you get to all the other parts you need thanks to the quick selection drop-down. It's like your home-base.

Edit----------------
Noticed it right now. If an comic on your fav list gets update you click on the cover in the pull-down menu and get to the profile.
But not on your own comics pull-down menu.
That's a suboptimal user guidance.

Alright. I've updated the menu to reflect how people have been voting. Let's see if the other camp comes out of the wood work now, lol.
