Modern Manifold

This week’s Dustinland comic was inspired by a famous George Carlin routine. Of course mine isn’t anywhere nearly as well-conceived (he’s George Carlin) or as lengthy (it takes longer to draw things than to say them), it still was damn fun to write. It was actually pretty tricky to draw though. I didn’t want the art to take away from the words, but I had to make it interesting, otherwise it would just turn into some weird sort of poem blog post—well, basically it would have turned into a bad McSweeney’s entry.

As for the title, Carlin’s is called Modern Man. Manifold means:

: marked by diversity or variety

: many 
c: comprehending or uniting various features 
d: rightfully so-called for many reasons
I think that works.
