This week’s new Dustinland comic is my final strip for 2020, so you can imagine what it’s about. But more than just a strip about how bad this year was, it’s also about how everyone is talking about what a bad year was, and how that in itself is annoying. I also do my best to keep it positive, but even that is a commentary on how a lot of people are also trying to put that spin on it.
Basically, no matter how you spin it, everything is dumb and pointless about this horrible year. But hopefully next year will be the start of something much better. Probably not, but it can’t hurt to think positive.
Happy new year everyone and thanks for your support!

This new Dustinland comic — the last of 2019 — is a bit of a “guide”‘ for your 2020 new year’s resolutions. But you know, it’s a bit tongue in cheek. You’ll see what I mean. Let’s just say that next year, maybe give yourself a bit of a break, if that’s what it takes to keep your sanity.
Good luck, happy new year, and thanks for reading!

The title of this post makes it pretty clear what this final new Dustinland comic of 2019 is about: New year’s resolutions! It’s weird. It’s been a long year, and sort of a shitty one for the world. Okay, not sort of — it’s been a fucking awful year for the world. Really terrible and depressing. My life though — not so bad. I did break my hand/arm a few times though, so that was shitty. And I’m dealing with some mid life crisis-y metaphysical kinda stuff, so there’s that. But overall, I didn’t get bombed, step on a landmine, or get implanted with a Chinese spy device, so I take that as a win.
Hope you can look past the crap and see things in the same light as I do, except without the blistering sarcasm and cynicism. See you next year, and thanks for all your support!
