2021: How It’s Going

This new Dustinland comic is my take on the “How it started, how it’s going” meme but in comic form. I kinda hate doing a comic based on a meme but I am actually busy working on another comic project and I have a day job so this two-panel format really is working for me right now.

But I do agree with the sentiment. Funny how quick that whole yay 2021 thing went away. I think I had a nice 5 days or so.

It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over

This week’s new Dustinland comic is meant to prepare my readers who voted for Biden. Prepare you for a week of hell. Maybe a few months of it. Because Trump will not leave peacefully. His followers won’t either. It is a cult, plain and simple. Not all 70 million who voted for him. But a certain element of it. And these diehards have so embraced dear leader, that they will believe anything he says. And he will rally them — maybe to violence.

So stay focused, people. Put down the bubbly. It’s time to get serious again. And that feeling you had Saturday when people were dancing in the street? Let that inspire you to fight for your right to feel it again January 20th.

A Dream of Redemption

With this week’s new pre-election Dustinland comic, I’m trying to keep it hopeful and inspiring! And that is hard for me, because I am NOT that kinda guy. Deep down inside, as I suggest in the final frame, I’m pretty pessimistic. But nobody needs that from me right now. I don’t even need that.

So here you have it. A little hope for redemption — for America. If I was a religious person, right now I’d say I’m praying for us all.

Derision 2020

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about the tough choice ahead of us in the U.S. presidential election. And by tough choice, I mean the decision between perhaps not your ideal candidate in the form of Joe Biden, and Trump, an evil conman dictator autocrat using America’s enemies to dismantle our democracy for his personal financial gain and narcissistic and likely mentally ill ego. You know, it’s a toss up. Vote for a nice guy who means well and is a rational caring human being, or someone who’s never done a thing to help anyone in his entire life, and whose actions could risk the future of life on earth. TOUGH CHOICE PEOPLE!

Moderaters

This week’s new Dustinland comic is my response to all the political experts who have been telling us who can and can’t beat Trump. Well, at least they tell us who can’t. And that seems to be anyone who actually stands for any sort of truly progressive issue, any candidate who believes in changing America for the better. They tell us, oh America isn’t ready for that. You stand for change? That’s crazy! You want the same healthcare the rest of the world has? You crazy leftists! You think it’s bad that multi-billion-dollar companies pay zero taxes in the U.S.? You wacky socialists! You better shut up and leave the politics to the centrists. Yes, play it safe, right down the middle, stand for nothing. That’s the way to win elections.

Meanwhile conservatives around the world push for increasingly extremist agendas and win. So the right goes further to the right, and it works for them, but we’re told that the left should not do the same… instead of fighting back and pushing for progressive stances, we should either support the status quo, or actually go further to the right. That makes a lot of sense. Turn ourselves into a watered down version of the right, in order to combat the right. That sounds like a winning recipe. But this advice is from the people who got us where we are today, so maybe they’re not the best ones to listen to after all.
