I have to assume there's no "it's true" tag because you would tangentially be calling your customers suckers. because make no mistake, this is very true.
I would say that it goes customer, fan, and then sucker. Casual buyers aren't prone to buying 52 different variant covers of the exact same comic.
No, it's definitely fan first. Why would you buy something for yourself that you're not a fan of?
@Silk_SkBecause curiosity.Haven't you ever bought a issue or two of something just to see what it was all about and then decided it wasn't worth reading more of that title? That's being a customer without being a fan.Or do you consider yourself a fan of things you're never even read?
Maybe a fan just steals comics off the internet.
I'd think the opposite nowadays. A casual reader steals from the internet, a fan buys. This may support the casual-to-fan theory.
The fact that I still read DC puts me in the sucker category.
Yep. 'Fraid so.
