This week’s new Dustinland comic is about those times when your kid wakes you up screaming in the middle of the night. You always run to the rescue, but rescue isn’t always what’s needed…
I’ll give it to my kiddo in this case. He was getting over the flu.
I could probably make every single comic about my kid, but I try to switch it up. But yes, here is my third Dustinland comic of the year, and it’s inspired by my son’s real “nightmare.” I mean, I guess it could be scary if it was “directed” right, if you will. Maybe scary like the part of the Shining where the guy is in the bear costume and you’re just like “what?” But man, when you wake up at 3:00 AM and run into the kid’s room, you expect something way worse that that.
Also, it’s a new year. Perfect time to buy my book, Thanks For The Meh-mories: 20 Years of Dustinland Comics! Now on Amazon, featuring such comics as The Theory of Hipster Relativity, Dorm of The Deaf, and More Choo-Choo! Buy it today, because you love me!
