You Better Watch Out

This week’s Dustinland sort of took the theme of last week’s comic and combined it with the holidays. I’m not really sure I love how it turned out, but it was my first time actually drawing Trump, believe it or not, and I think that took time away from the writing. But man, that guy has no neck. Who knew? Everyone focuses on the hair and skin color and now chins, but I feel like he really is neckless. I mean, our long line of presidents is not a beauty pageant by any means, so I am not saying it has any effect on his leadership ability to not have a clear definition between head and shoulders in the form of a neck. I’m just saying I looked at a lot of photos to draw the guy and it’s basically just straight lines up from shoulders to head.

Merry Christmas!

America

Well America, we did it. We really did it. And now we’re tearing each other apart, as I allude to in this week’s Dustinland comic.

I’m not going say anything more for now. You’ve read it all. You’ve said it all. It’s been a week unlike any other. And the only thing that is clear is that there are two Americas, and they’re as far apart as can be.

Letter: Politicin

This letter dates from early 2004. Remember that year? When we re-elected George W. Bush? Yup. Those were some great times. (By the way, the guy who wrote this letter is a black dude so he is allowed to drop the N-bomb, although I did 9 it out to make it more palatable).

Hey man. I’m feelin your political comics lately. People don’t realize how bad it is today. But someone will fuck it up in the near future and heads will snap. For instance, if someone on CNN said “Yes, I am a Republican, and as you know all Republicans hate ni99ers,” then that would be something to get everyone’s attention. Or if someone said, “Yeah, I support Bush. He is from Texas and ever since the Alamo we hated Mexicans, and Arabs are just Mexicans who ride camels.” Then everyone would be like oooooh wow.
What I am saying by this. As an artist, you can put things in layman’s terms and make a draaaaaaastic change. How do you think Robin Hood got people to go and fight against dudes who had shiny armor and horses and a huge castle? Maybe he put shit in lamens terms like, “Uh, look, he is taxing us. Why should we pay him if he never protects us from that bear that ate your uncle? Where was the king when the storm came in and froze all the crops? I’ll tell you where he was! He was taxing your ass for having a lack of apples at this years banquet for the queen. FUCK HIM!!” And they all said “Yeah!! Fuck him!!!”
That’s what you do. You put comics together that make me go hmmmm. And with that said, you don’t have to be a CEO or a knight in shining armer sucking the king’s and bishop’s dicks, faking like you love God then hating gays but butt-fucking your squire every night. You can just be you and take your knowledge and spread it. Do more research and get shit poppin. Like I said, I will stand by you. Just keep me informed and I will spread it from there. Who knows, maybe I might get arrested for spreading it on a song.
So when is the Republican convention coming to town?
