Is that a good or bad idea? What are your thoughts if a creator of a comic series put themselves in the universe and they're a fully-developed character?

Like what, Whomp! and Ronnie's other thing? I don't really like it, I prefer when they hide their self-insert.

I'm fine if it's a "cameo" for comedy.

"What are your thoughts if a creator of a comic series put themselves in the universe...?"

surely the only rule should be does it work or not?

stan lee is the only who I've seen that doesn't do it in an overtly obnoxious way

maybe hirsch too but people have the hack meme as of late so I didn't want to mention it

finn used to be good when pen was around and dipper a good kid but most of the time self-insert are really anoying like aeolus06 porn for example

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of that is 1/0, which is interesting enough but gets unbearably preachy and masturbatory at times. It was improvised day-by-day, though, and seems kind of like the author's attempt at some self-exploration that wasn't primarily meant to appeal to others.

How about the character have the creator's looks and personality, but they don't state that their the creators in the series? In fact, he is part of the the series's universe

I'm making a comic series and the main protagonist is based on my personality and looks. Do you guys think that's good or bad?

people assume it's the author's self-insertanyway and treat them as such. the personality doesn't even have to be the same. the author of jojo was horrified to find out that many of his fans assumed he was as big an asshole in real life as his manga author character Rohan

If they are not a Mary Sue it isn't too bad. But when they make themselves an OP Mary Sue it's a bad idea. On the other hand if they insert themselves to be killed, make a cameo or something like that it's okay.

I like autobio comics but you might talking about something else?

I'd rather they be honest about it.

Only Gintama does it right.

hussie did it for a while and overall it was pretty good, he even had the taste to get himself killed by the main bad guy at the end
