I apologize if this is a repeat thread.
What comic creators (writers or artists) do you know of who don't like or don't care about comics? It seems most people in the industry today are in the business because they really want to be there, but I know that hasn't always been the case.
I know Jack Kirby never thought too much about his work, mainly considering it just a way to make a living (well that is what he claimed anyway). Curt Swan didn't seem too proud of his work although he was a fan favorite. And then there are creators who seem particularly against comics. The two I can think of are John Buscema and CC Beck. John Buscema has always seemed rather cynical about the business, pretty much saying that he just hacked out work to make as much money as possible. I believe CC Beck has said that comics shouldn't be treated as a serious artistic medium, and that using too much effort on your work is a waste. If I made a mistake just let me know, this is just what I remember from reading interviews and such.
Do you know of any other writers or artists who have worked in comics who seem to have a dislike towards the medium and the work they've done? Anecdotes and quotes would be appreciated!
