Mad Magazine is gone, and this week’s new Dustinland comic is in celebration of a classic publication. So influential, a home to so many great artists and satirists… now a victim of the modern, digital era. Unable to pull at Nat Geo and reinvent itself for the days of Instagram, or even the days of peak television, it’s going away forever. And I’m so grateful I had the chance to work with them.
Just for a while, I got to be… one of the usual gang of idiots.
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.
This week’s new Dustinland comic is about the kinds of TV shows I like to watch. I won’t reveal the joke to you now, but I will say there is one exception to what I mention in the comic: Stranger Things. Man, I do love that show. But as for the rest, the comic is pretty on point.
Everywhere I go, dudes are talking about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. White dudes. Everywhere. It feels like nerdy legalized gambling for gamers. But some of these dudes definitely made some cash, so maybe I’m the weird one to be skeptical?
But yeah, that’s what this week’s new Dustinland comic is inspired by. Invest today!
And when I say invest, I mean buy my new book, Thanks For The Meh-mories: 20 Years of Dustinland Comics. Now on Amazon!
