And so ends Wedge Roberts versus The Epic Malaise. TBH I was never happy with the title, it sounds too much like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I'd always intended changing it, but so far I haven't come up with anything better. The completion of this comic also brought about my final disenchantment with the Australian publishing industry. I submitted this manuscript to all the major childrens/Young Adult publishers in the country, and it was nonchalantly rejected by all. So too were previous efforts. Comics and graphic novels are alien to Australia, the middle-class women who run Australian publishing do not understand them, and have no idea how to sell them. Thus I decided these publishers could go fuck themselves - I would concentrate on internet success, and abandon Australian print to wallow in the doldrums where it still remains today.
