tragedyseries:

Friends, readers and colleagues,

It is with surpassing pride and gladness that I can, at long last, show you the cover to the upcoming complete collection of this series and announce the first opportunity to pre-order an copy for your very own. The book will include every tragedy, a 22 page story written and drawn by me just for the collection along with additional illustrations and other exclusive content that will not be available online.

If you have enjoyed the series thus far and would like to support it in a tangible way, it would be a great catalyst in the longterm potential success, proliferation and acceptance of this book in this wide, wild world of ours, if you would consider pre-ordering it from one of the following retailers:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Itunes/Ibooks

Please tell your friends, professors, pumpkins, pets and sworn enemies about it. I thank you for all the support, kindness and for the shared sense of comedy emerging from tragedy that we apparently share. Good day to you all.

Most sincerely,
BD

Most clientsfromhell stories are amusing. This one is genuinely scary:

I was contracted by a local business to create a logo and a website; my client said that a mutual friend referred me. We discussed his project over the phone and he agreed to meet me at a local coffee shop to start work after the contract had been signed.

After receiving the signed contract…

I don’t know if this is a bootleg scanlation or the actual licensed edition, but I love that the translator took the time to define The Bechdel Test for their audience.

From a translated edition of Superior Foes of Spider-Man #13 that I found online, which may or may not be legit. 

This might be my favorite Tragedy Series ever.
