Abstract
One of the most remarkable features of comics creators is their overwhelming identification as fans, reflecting not only a generic tendency of creative industries to recruit from among subcultures but also the historical relationships between the comics industry and its fans. This article approaches comics as a media industry and site of creative labor, drawing on the results of a large-scale survey of comics creators. While high levels of affective engagement with work mean that many report themselves as satisfied with their working situation, the de-differentiation of labor and leisure presents a risk of self-exploitation.
