What’s In A Name

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about when people get your name wrong. I used to just get Justin instead of Dustin, but these days, it has gotten weirder.

So…  anyone ever really mangle your name?

The Awful Tooth

I don’t stand by the words of my six-year-old featured in this week’s new Dustinland comic, but they were pretty funny. One of those instances where the kid says something wrong and you have to hold in the laughter because you don’t want to encourage naughty behavior. Actually, I just made that up. I wasn’t even there — he said it to my wife. But it is totally that kind of line.

In related news, it must be impossible to make an original tooth/truth pun. They must all be done, simply in the dentist merchandising arena alone. Ain’t that the tooth.

Coffee High

This new Dustinland comic is about coffee and how much I love those rare moments when I am super coffeed up and not just full of energy, but full of ideas. Even if those ideas wind up sucking, man, it feels good in the moment. There was a time when I barely drank coffee, and back then, WOW, it was a guarantee that when I did drink it, I’d be running up the walls. It used to be a thing. You can ask peeps. But now I drink about a cup a day, maybe two, and it usually just gets me up and ready for the day. But sometimes, for whatever reason, it hits me extra hard, and man, that is the best. I just love it when it feels like a chiseled military hamster is running around my skull, ferociously and optimistically getting things done. And I bet no one ever wrote that sentence before.

Fashion Weak

This week’s new Dustinland comic is not really a comic, but rather a series of illustrations where I insert myself into bizarre high fashion ads. No commentary really, just fun. I enjoy it. Always have, always will. Because fashion can be super weird and serious and that is hilarious.

Risqué Business

This week’s new Dustinland comic is quite cheeky. It’s about dads — well, one dad: me — making naughty little double entendres around the house since my little one is too young to understand them. Totally immature, but you do have to find ways to entertain yourself in this domestic life.

Nose To Nose

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about my giant nose. Actually, it’s about my normal nose, but some dude called it giant. Whatevs. I guess it’s a little bigger than average but… well, you can read the comic. I won’t ruin it for you here.

But yeah, nose haters can kiss my ass.

No Thanks

This new Dustinland comic is about how I don’t know how to accept a compliment. Some say it is part of Imposter Syndrome, but I don’t buy that. But who knows! Maybe it is. Either way,  it’s something I’m working on. When someone says something nice, just say thank you! Don’t make it awkward. Shouldn’t be so hard but for some reason my instinct opts toward the awkward.

Can you relate?
