As I knew the 500th comic of The Daily Misfortune was approaching, last week I thought it was time for #500 to be the end. After all, 500 is a LOT of misfortunes, and I have other comic projects I want to work on. I'm actually surprised I did this many without being redundant. I created the first Daily Misfortune on 5/17/12, and have loved creating funny misfortunes from the totally fictional bizarre to the disturbingly too-close-to-home ones based on real life. Earlier this week, I thought "I have to come up with a zinger for the last one." After this election, now you have it. However, I've been re-inspired, and this will NOT be the end of The Daily Misfortune! Sadly, it looks like our country, and possibly the world, will have many more misfortunes to come. The hard part for me will be putting a funny spin on them.
Now, I'm not usually a very "political person," (I don't even keep track of news often - too busy making art) so this doesn't mean that from now on each Daily Misfortune will be a political rant. I really don't want friends and family fighting on my Facebook wall about this. But whether you voted for Trump or not, you can bet the next 4 years will be very tumultuous. To balance out all the misfortunes, I'll try to offer a positive note. As you have seen, truly ANYONE can become president.
