Recently, I have had a manuscript rejected and have been part of a rejected group manuscript. Both will be re-written and resubmitted. There are many reasons for rejecting a manuscript, ultimately the peer review process forces us to higher achievements via the rejection process. As a peer reviewer I have rejected a few manuscripts, so I know the process from both sides. This comic is about the decidedly unfunny aftermath of manuscript rejection. All the usual caveats apply. Remember, these are trained cartoon characters – do not try this at home.
