I'm still around in the webcomic game even with all the roadblocks I've ran headlong into and all the personal struggles I've had to deal with that I didn't anticipate when starting out. Old me would be surprised that I have almost 300 people interested in LoaA across Tapastic and LINE WEBTOONS. Granted, only a small fraction of that number actually engages with my comic, but even so, I've proved that there's an audience for Life of an Aspie no matter how low key it is. Furthermore, it works to my advantage that the fans I do have are often genuine when commenting on my comic.That's something that even the big or "popular" creators who have a mountain sized fanbase will never be able to experience. Honestly, I used to be jealous of those types of creators, but now?
I pity them.
I pity the fact that they have to deal with lots of immature or idiotic fans. (LINE WEBTOONS anybody?)
I pity the fact that some of them can't speak their mind without verbal reprisal for having a different opinion.
I pity the fact that some of them are only valued because they make simple "relateable" gag comics.
