If there's something about a comics creator that turns you off, will that influence whether you buy their work or not? Does it matter if it was something in the past or present?
I mainly ask because, after Tom Beland threw a tantrum on the blog, I'm pretty disinclined to ever pick up "True Story, Swear to God". Granted, I was sort of apathetic to it anyway, but now I'm sure I won't bother.
Of course, I've always said that you shouldn't hold the art responsible for the artist. Should Wagner's anti-semitism prohibit us from appreciating his music? Or is it different because he's dead?
What are your thoughts?
And how long before Tom Beland shows up to tear me a new asshole?
