You shouldn’t create comics if you don’t love it. Plain and simple. This will always be a labor of love.
Comics doesn’t pay. Generally, you can’t make a living off of it. (Not a living where you can also have “luxury” items like steady work, health insurance, dental insurance, and the like. For that, you need to do what almost everyone else does, and trade your time to do their work for their money.) There are precious few creators who can honestly make a real living off comics, and even then, they had to struggle to get there.
Creating comics is an expensive endeavor. (I feel like a broken record sometimes when I say this, but it’s true, and some of you don’t/won’t get it until you actually try to produce a comic. That’s why I continue to repeat it.) If you’re creating a comic for the first time, and you somehow managed to break even, then you’re doing things right. Most of the comics first-time creators produce are money pits. And that’s okay. That’s how you learn. It’s just an expensive lesson.
This is why you have to do it for the love. Love will carry you through the tough times. (And believe me, they are there, and they are plenty. They never really go away. Sisyphean task, really. You’re just pushing the boulder of work up the mountain, generally because you love it. There’s no other reason why.
Hollywood and its gleam are definitely attractive. It glitters and just because a show like Axe Cop gets put on television as a cartoon doesn’t mean you can do it. You have to look at the roots of the thing, see where it came from, see its gimmick. Can you replicate two brothers creating a comic, with the artist being in their twenties and the writer being a toddler? No? Then think of something else. Being “good” is subjective. You have to have something that stands out, despite the absurdity of the material, or maybe because of it.
But love should always be first and foremost. If you can find a way to always do it for the love, then you’ll never feel like you’re doing it for nothing.
