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! :D

Whatever they're doing... it's not getting me interested in buying them again. :/

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! Meow :3

If I would publish a comic, I'd do it for myself. So...
But in the x+1. part of a comic there can be felt tha thread of the readers... Usually here the story dies.

Making comics can be both fun and a way to relieve stress, even if it's tough. Though to keep their money goin, they have to produce more comics for readers to enjoy. However, I believe comic creators simply enjoy the fun of producing a new comic and the joy it brings to their readers.
