Question marks in titles of work
When using an introductory clause with a title of a work that has a question mark, where do you put the comma? Inside or outside of the quotation marks?

Since you are referencing a work, the comma goes outside the quotations. If it wasn't a title, but just some paraphrased quote or something, it would stay inside the quotation marks. Also, put a comma before "What", because it dictates a pause, as without the title, it would go straight to the author's name.
