However I do get frustrated when someone I've known for a long time and has been following me on Facebook and/or Twitter asks me, "What's that comic book thing you do?" That's something of a slap in the face because sometimes I get the feeling that some people I know feel they are too smart or too cool to read comic books, graphic novels, and webcomics. I post information regarding my work to my Facebook and Twitter accounts, so I know my family and friends have the opportunity to see my work.
I understand that not everyone is a fan of comic books, graphic novels, and webcomics. However, you'd expect close friends and family members who are not fans to at least take a look at your work.
There are family and friends that are very supportive of my webcomics. My wife and kids are big fans of comic books and my work at Champion City Comics. I didn't want this post to become a pity party post, but I'm curious if any other comic book or webcomics creators have experienced similar problems.
