This week’s new Dustinland comic is about how so many sites are getting real uppity with the kind of language they use when they try to get you to sign up for whatever crappy list they want you on, or even to opt out of alerts. The comic pretty much says it all, but if you haven’t noticed this yet, I bet you will in the near future.
In other news, I did not post a comic last week because… work. Man, it’s hard to find time to draw comics between having a career and being a parent. It’s rough to miss out, every time I miss a strip I feel a bit empty, a bit unsatisfied, for the rest of the week. But there’s only so much time in the day. I’ll do my best though. 21 years and counting!
The title of this post makes it pretty clear what this final new Dustinland comic of 2019 is about: New year’s resolutions! It’s weird. It’s been a long year, and sort of a shitty one for the world. Okay, not sort of — it’s been a fucking awful year for the world. Really terrible and depressing. My life though — not so bad. I did break my hand/arm a few times though, so that was shitty. And I’m dealing with some mid life crisis-y metaphysical kinda stuff, so there’s that. But overall, I didn’t get bombed, step on a landmine, or get implanted with a Chinese spy device, so I take that as a win.
Hope you can look past the crap and see things in the same light as I do, except without the blistering sarcasm and cynicism. See you next year, and thanks for all your support!
This week’s new Dustinland comic is right on time for Christmas! It’s about how hard it is to pick out presents as you get older.
Happy holidays everyone!
Oh and hey, if you still need a last minute gift… there’s always my book!
This week’s new Dustinland comic is about those times when your kid wakes you up screaming in the middle of the night. You always run to the rescue, but rescue isn’t always what’s needed…
I’ll give it to my kiddo in this case. He was getting over the flu.
This new Dustinland comic is about my upcoming 40th birthday, which I am totally not freaking out about. For realz.
You know, I already had two major life changes. 1. Becoming a parent. That one is an obvious one. 2. Becoming someone’s boss. That might be a bit surprising, but for me personally, I did feel like that was a major turning point for me — a sort of, “okay, no way to pretend I’m still a kid.” 40, you know, it’s significant, but I feel like I have already been in this stage for a while now, so it’s just a number to me.
But a fun number! A number worth celebrating. You know, after 30, birthdays just don’t seem to matter so might as well at least enjoy it every 10 years. So yay me. And after this, I’ll see you at 50.
This week’s Dustinland comic is about how as parents, we try to expose our kids to new things and make sure they get out into the world and have a good time, and all the while they battle us over every little step. I’m glad I do it though! In the long run, it all works itself out.
