Joining The Club

This week’s new Dustinland comic follows further into my homeownership voyage. Definitely more fun to write about than the election, that’s for sure. I wonder how people who don’t own homes will view this strip? Fear? Boredom? Excitement? Either way, the strips will continue as buying a house has consumed my existence, and all my inspiration is from this experience. Joining the club indeed.

Mi Casa es Mi Casa

I just bought a house. And that’s what this week’s latest Dustinland comic is about. Honestly, I could write an entire graphic novel just about this. The entire process. In some ways you could say it took years. Just closing on the house alone was many months. I could go on and on here and now, but I will save it for future comics.

If I have the time to draw comics, that is, since I will soon be so broke, in my spare time I’ll have to be one of those guys selling bottled water at stoplights.

Dustinland — Houses Are For Grown-Ups

In this week’s Dustinland I chronicle an argument between my lovely wife and I. Yes, I know most of you think that it would be impossible for any girl lucky enough to land a catch like me to ever argue about anything, but alas, there is always something. Really though, buying a house is pretty frightening. Just the idea of owing so much money, especially in these days of mortgage meltdowns and the plummeting dollar… I mean, if I can get stressed out now I can’t imagine what it would be like if I had mortgage payments to worry about. Well, looks like the future holds plenty of excitement!
