I generally work with 67# and 110#. 67#, for me, is fine for average human-sized and smaller. If it is twice human-sized, I will either sandwich another layer of 67# in between the two sides or use 110#. Some folks use 110# for everything.
I'm probably not the one to answer this question
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
I use either cardboard from food packaging, such as cereal boxes, or water-colour paper which is about 180 to 220 g/m2. Now, because my current printer cannot seem to be to feed such thick paper, I print to normal paper and glue on the heavy card/paper. After printing the figures (either directly to the card or onto paper, then gluing to the card), I then score the middle line and fold and glue.
For me, it's a trade-off between durability and practicality to build. Too thin, and the figures bend to bend and get ruined to easily, but too thick and they are hard to cut out neatly.
I would suggest trying different cards/paper types and techniques - you find one that suits you best.

Vermin King: I appreciate the effort to do comics. Story line, setting up the scenes/frames, setting the dialog to be concise, and bringing it all together. All the best, sir

Vermin King: I had gotten down to less than 1/16 of a mile and not being able to stand for more than 4 minutes without crumbling to the ground, so getting better. Now, I just need to get my folks improving

Vermin King: My stressful 2023 started in March, 2020, and fortunately, progress is keeping up with the set-backs ... for the most part. I'm still upright and last Monday, I was able to stretch my after-breakfast walk to 3/4 of a mile.
