This new Dustinland comic is about the people keeping our society functioning right now… or better yet, it’s about how it feels to not be one of them. I mean, in terms of the complexity of the way our economy works, everyone is “necessary” in the sense that all these parts keep the money moving, keep tax dollars flowing… basically us “unessential” white collar workers do help pay the essential workers. But it still feels weird working from home and having some person making minimum wage bring food to my house like a servant. I’m grateful of course. I have a great life. These are just weird times that make certain things about our civilization hit home.

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about quarantine and groceries and people who have already caught the bug and waited two weeks and are now free, sort of…
Speaking of food, what staple are you currently missing? I need eggs. Also I read that baby chicks are selling out at farm supply stores. Who knew? You can’t buy eggs or the things that make them. I wonder which problem came first…
Quarantine means working from home — at least for those lucky white collar peeps such as myself. And as we are trapped inside safely, not forced to risk our asses for everyone else like so many essential workers are right now, many of them severely underpaid and unappreciated, those of us unfamiliar with this kind of work style are learning that we need tricks to successfully WFH. This new Dustinland comic is about a new one I just discovered! Maybe not sustainable but for now, it feels pretty right.
This new Dustinland comicis about how optimistic and pessimistic outlooks affect how you’re doing during times of crisis. Namely, this huge global pandemic that is absolutely fucking everyone’s shit up right now. Fun times!

Here’s a new Dustinland comic about the coronavirus! Ah yes, fun times. Who doesn’t love a good pandemic mixed in with some quarantine action. But yeah, I don’t have any extra background on this strip, although I will say that this article is very interesting, and taught me that there have in fact been multiple coronaviruses, including SARS and others that were essentially little more than colds.
