Two comics for the new year

I drew two comics for the new year.

A positive one. 

A negative one. 

Which did you click on first?

Parenthood New Year’s Eve

Happy New Year everyone! This final Dustinland comic of 2015 highlights what’s in store for all the parents of small children out there – and it’s not a late night of dining, dancing and drinking.

Enjoy and thanks for the support! See you all in 2016!

New Year’s Absolution

As I say with this week’s Dustinland, this year I’m not even pretending to have New Year’s resolutions that I’m actually going to follow through on. It’s just too disappointing, setting yourself up for failure like that.

Well, see you in 2015!

The Top Comic I Drew About The Top Things That Happened in 2013

This final Dustinland comic of 2013 is my usual year end summary. I don’t always do it, but most of the time (2012   2011   2010   2000-2009   2005   2003   2002). I don’t know if anyone likes these, but I enjoy doing them, because it helps me get a good glimpse of the year in one shot, and it’s also nice to look back on further down the road.

Each year I try to give the strip a different spin. In 2010 it was a social media thing. This year I sort of did a little riff on lists. You know, December is list time. Top Albums of the Year! Top Songs! Top Videos! Top Movies! Top Memes! People Who Died! Etc… So everything in my comic is a “top” list. Even if there’s just one thing. HAHA! Get it?! Boy that’s almost sort of funny.

See you next year!

Rolling Over 2012

Hey, check out this special comic celebrating 2012! I usually like to end off the year with these sort of look back type strips, but this year I decided to jazz it up a bit and make it more interactive. Let me know if you like it! Maybe I’ll do more of these.

This year kinda sucked a bit, but it could have been worse so here’s to a great 2013!

PS Check out these Dustinland comics looking back at other years:

Heroic New Year’s Resolutions

Not too much to say about this one. Just starting the new year out with some lighthearted silliness before I get back to all the doom and gloom I’m known for. But hey, who knows, maybe this year will be a great year and I can just draw comics about boobs and farts and year. Oh wait, it’s an election year. I guess I’ll still be writing about a bunch boobs but in a different capacity.

2011: Been There, Done That

I love doing these year in review comics at the end of each year. For one, it’s just interesting to take a look back and get a good picture of the last 365 days, see what you’ve already forgotten about and see what sort of trends were going on in the world. Last year I found to be the year social media really took the world by storm so the theme of my comic was all internety. This year was really all about protests and revolution and what not, although I didn’t follow through with that theme in my weird ass comic that I drew while I was a bit silly, if you know what I mean (these things are kinda detailed and need a lot of time to research and draw, and you have to stay entertained somehow, right?).

Oh, and two, I like doing these comics because five or 10 years from now, they’re even more interesting. Kinda like a little time capsule. Good times.

See you in 2012!
