Emergensea

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I make fun of the poster from 9-1-1 Season 3. I didn’t even know this was a show until the thumbnail popped up on Netflix. I can only assume it is a pretty bad generic cop/ER drama, just with a little Michael Bay over the top FX sprinkled on.

I know this is really out of the blue but I think it’s funny and it’s nice to take a break from politics for a minute and just laugh at something stupid (stupider than politics that is, if that’s possible).

Inconceivaple

This week’s Dustinland comic is about the vaping scare, which is definitely freaking out a lot of people. You know, I don’t feel bad for the big companies that are trying to get kids hooked on candy apple bubble gum vapes, but I do feel bad for all the vape shops that have popped up around the country. Not that they’re nice places, but I mean… that’s a lot of small businesses that are getting hit by a sudden massive problem.

Also I feel bad for anyone who wants to sneak weed into a concert.

Look I’m Old

I didn’t feel like downloading some weird app just to make myself look old, especially since it could be a sketchy data capture scam. So I drew it instead.

Mad No More

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.

Feelin Phoney

This latest Dustinland comic is about phones and how we use them a lot. Certainly not a new topic, but I did have some recent experiences that shed new light on the situation, at least for me. I won’t dwell on it here because really, nothing new, we are all aware that we use our phones too much. But yeah, really — no one cares what you share.

Molecular

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.
