Squirst

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about soap squirts, with a subtle reminder at the end to note vote for a fascist. The thing is, after months of pandemic and political comics, I do have a backlog of just “normal” themes I want to put into the world. But… it does feel wrong to just ignore what’s happening right now. So, tahdah — best of both worlds.

What’s The Difference

Some people may have their feelings hurt by this new Dustinland comic, but that was not my intention. I’m simply bringing to life the inner dialogue that takes place within the mind of cynical folks like myself, whose instincts are to expect the worst from most people and scenarios. And at times like these, while it may be natural to scoff at people simply posting on social media as if that’s going to change the world, it’s important to realize that EVERYTHING helps. You need all the things. Yes, of course action is more important than likes and shares, but that doesn’t make social media posts bad or useless, especially when they are well-intentioned expressions of honest frustration that the world just won’t seem to change.

The Chosen Ones

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about quarantine and groceries and people who have already caught the bug and waited two weeks and are now free, sort of…

Speaking of food, what staple are you currently missing? I need eggs. Also I read that baby chicks are selling out at farm supply stores. Who knew? You can’t buy eggs or the things that make them. I wonder which problem came first…

Corona Light

Here’s a new Dustinland comic about the coronavirus! Ah yes, fun times. Who doesn’t love a good pandemic mixed in with some quarantine action. But yeah, I don’t have any extra background on this strip, although I will say that this article is very interesting, and taught me that there have in fact been multiple coronaviruses, including SARS and others that were essentially little more than colds.

It My Birtday

This new Dustinland comic is about birthdays — mine more importantly, but yeah, sure. Yours too.

If I had time I would have made it way weirder but I’ve been busy doing birthday thangs.

Bite me

This latest Dustinland comic is inspired by a few recent mysterious bug bites. Of course I instantly jumped to the conclusion that I had bed bugs. I can’t help it. Too paranoid from all those years in NYC. But yeah, the bites went away so I’m probably in the clear. No idea what they were. Fleas maybe? We have lots of wildlife running around our yard and I was doing yard work the day before I got the bites so I may have dragged a few little biters into the house. Did some serious sheet and pillow case washing and now I’m bite free, so who knows.

Man, nature sure does hate us. And for good reason, if you think about it.

Handicap

This new Dustinland comic was inspired by Demetri Martin’s Point Your Face At This.

Clams

This new Dustinland comic is basically what it’s like to be my friend. You say something innocent in passing, and I dissect it in an annoying fashion, completely ruining your train of thought for my own amusement. But I am bored by life so I must do these things to find joy.

9 Steps to Building Your Personal Brand

This new Dustinland comic is my most helpful and career-minded. Really, just follow these tips and you’ll find yourself more successful than you could ever have imagined. It’s not that hard. You just have to believe in yourself, then take the time and effort to identify what you want, and put your mind toward getting it by differentiating yourself from all the others out there.

You know what I mean? Yeah. You know.

Bluh

I have been having a tough time lately coming up with cute observational comics as I watch the world burn. That’s what this week’s new Dustinland comic is about. I have a feeling people won’t enjoy it very much, since it’s just depressing and offers little humor or solution. But it’s really just therapy for me — I need to get it out so I can move on.
