Heck I'm still subbed to several comics that haven't updated in at least months, if not years in one case. Why? Because I love them, even if it's just going back and re-reading what there is of it. These authors will never subscribe to my work-- they're probably not even on Tapas anymore.
All I want is that kind of fan: Someone who's there because they like the comic, the characters, the art, the story.
(although I won't lie-- I think I'd die if someone ever liked my work enough to cosplay it.)
