Image Comics creator Otis Frampton, who both writes and draws the Image Comics series Oddly Normal, set a prime example for how comic book creators can and should interact with their fans and consumers.

After Image Comics’creator John Layman’s disgusting actions were made public, one fan declared they would never buy from Image ever again despite the comic book publisher being 60% of their pull list.

Frampton would respond in an extremely professional manner by offering free copies of his Oddly Normal series to ensure the customer that “not all Image creators treat their customers (or potential customers) with disrespect.”

Frampton would continue to show his class with an interaction with another potential customer.

While Otis Frampton set a fantastic example, Marvel Comics and Image Comics creator Jim Zub had excellent advice for his fellow professionals.

It’s great advice. As they saying goes, “Practice makes perfect.”

What do you make Otis Frampton’s interactions with fans? Do you think more comic book creators should follow his example? What about Jim Zub’s advice? Should they follow his advice?
