This week’s new Dustinland comic is a scrumptious illustrated voyage through a tasting menu of one of the world’s most celebrated restaurants. OR IS IT…

Really though, I do love this kind of challenging, surprising food. But it’s also hilarious. So when you read this comic, please read it to the music they play at the beginning of Chef’s Table. Maybe even read it out loud to that music.

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.

Easy Watchin

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!

Coming soon… Dustinland in book form

I’ll make it short: I’m coming out with a book. A compilation. Best of 20 years. Trying to get it out before 2017 is over so…

Back to work!

Stay tuned!

Exposed

I gotta say, when Louis CK was implicated as a moltesty perv, it was really depressing. Can we have no heroes? I mean, Freud said we’re all screwed up over sex, but can’t these dudes be silently or privately screwed up like everyone else and not take it out on innocent people (I was going to say women but there’s Kevin Spacey)? Well anyway, that’s the subject of this week’s Dustinland comic. And like I say in the comic, it’s crazy, but right now every guy in America is walking around, wondering if they ever did something they shouldn’t have. And that’s a good thing, because I can only assume it will lead to less creepy activities in the future.

In lighter news, I was playing a game with my friends where we tried to figure out who would be the person least likely to be outed as a molester. My buddy said Tom Hanks and I don’t think I could beat that. Another friend said Dave Grohl, which is pretty good too, although as a rock star, I think he comes in second after Hanks. How about Viggo Mortensen? He seems like a nice guy. Have you ever seen him in a nordic sweater? Innocent, I say. Oh… wait… I got it: Stevie Wonder.

If I Were Single

To be honest, this new Dustinland comic is just a scheme to go into my YOLO joke. I could have just talked about how You Only Live Once is basically We’re All Gonna Die, but it’s funnier / easier to read in a story, so there you have it. Comics, behind the scenes. Fascinating and unpredictable as always!

Really though, this comic does have a bit of that sitcom zinger feel to it, but again, I do like the basic insight. YOLO is sort of morbid if you think about it. Acknowledging death — in a positive, accepting manner, albeit, but still.

Also, can you say YOLO if you believe in reincarnation? Or would that be TAMLSYBBAITOOYWUAWITNO (There Are Many Lives So You Better Be Awesome In This One Or You’ll Wind Up A Worm In The Next One)!

But seriously folks.
