This week’s new Dustinland comic is a rewording of the famous folk song, This Land Is Your Land. Trying to keep some similarities with the phrasing and wording of the original, I updated it to speak to the anxious and divided country America has become. Not that we were ever some perfect nation of peace and love, but at least in my lifetime, things have never been this bad.
I guess I should give people some words of hope and encouragement now, but things are looking pretty grim to me. But… prove me wrong! How about that. When things turn out just fine because of your actions, you can laugh at the stupidest negative cartoonist. Does that inspire you to make a difference? Because that’s all I’ve got right now.

This new Dustinland comic is about how there’s a Trump CONvoy coming to my town soon. Maybe tomorrow. Not sure. Supposedly it’s a “back the blue” convoy but we all know it’s just a parade full of brainwashed fascists for Trump, just waiting to unload their guns in the name of Q. So I churned out this quickie strip just to remind people to not play into their game, don’t meet them with violence, be peaceful, hell, maybe even ignore them. And vote. Let them have their truck and boat parties. The only thing that matters is that we vote out their criminal leader before the year is over, and Moscow Mitch with him.

This new Dustinland comicis about having nostalgia for the 90s. But the dumb kind of pop culture nostalgia that fills the Buzzfeeds of the web, although I put some of that in there for the funnies, but nostalgia for an era before 9-11, before Trump, before social media… a time where your biggest worries were personal and petty, not global and apocalyptic. And that’s not to say there weren’t awful things happening in the 90s. It’s just that on one hand, we weren’t quite as aware of them, and on the other hand, they didn’t seem to be threatening the entire fabric of our society.
