On the other side, maybe if your only experience of a comic's creator was a stupid forum argument, would that make you view that person's comic with more jaded eyes and notice the bad more than the good?
Guilty as charged! But I think YOU already know that story...
You do have a nice comic and it turns out, you're a pretty dynamic person too.
That said, the relationship between creator and comic is much like watching your favorite actor on TV or listening to your favorite music. I had a discussion with one of my students the other day about R.Kelly - For those who do not know, R.Kelly is an R & B singer in America who in the last couple of years was accused of having sexual relations with a minor and also, allegedly urinating and deficating on her - check the Internet for a video of this and decide for yourself if that is indeed R.Kelly.
That said, the argument was basically, "Yeah, sure, even IF he did those things...I STILL love his music! I don't like what he does, but he's a great artist".
Same goes for comic creators. It is possible to love their characters but HATE their
character. If you know what I mean. John Byrne - One of my favorite artists, whom I met, was the nicest guy. Some of his peers and people in the comic world think he's usually an arrogant S.O.B.. It's basically akin to loving the sinner, and hating the sin.
