I would say mostly for us, because if they were doing it for themselves it probably would be more suited to their own tastes and would be less likely to appeal to the masses, and therefore ever be published.
I think just like anything, when it comes to a dream job, at first its really fun and you do it for yourself and others as well. But A lot of comic artists (old school) seem to just keep doing it for the money after a while it just becomes a job to them. That's the scene I get.

Comic Artists are like Writers, for that they love to enjoy themselves and they want to audience to enjoy the designs, plot(s), characters, climax, scenery, and much more. I'm not really good Comic Artist, but I LOVE WRITING! Writing is pretty much fun, and I enjoy it for myself, as well I wish to see if the audience around me could enjoy it. However, the thing is for Publishing Companies being chosen by the authors/comic artists, it seems like it's a large gamble in a way, hoping to succeed for a lot of money. I'm not to sure if they ever pay attention to the details, plots, characters, and much more other stuff... It's something that should be asked in the polls.... o_O Aye, must be darn interesting then!
Both, definitely! The artist enjoys making, drawing and writing the characters and plot lines and stories! But at the same time, the reader is enjoying every bit of what this artist has done, simply by reading their work!
