We haven’t had a proper one of these in over a decade! I’ve got to seek out rejection more often. For those of you who might not remember, “Tales of the Expected” is the series of comics I draw when my writing gets rejected. The skinny fellow who says dubiously comforting things is Jeremy Mishigosh, a preindustrial serial killer I started writing about when I was about seventeen. He goes around creating havoc in a green, Tolkieny kind of environment, except for when he pops up to “encourage” me. You’d think he’d be nicer about my creative output given that he’s part of it.
