First Day

This new Dustinland comic is my take on the first day of school posts that have been dominating my social media feeds lately. Shouldn’t need no explainin… but if you don’t get it, just Google “first day of school chalkboard.”

Playdate

I literally drew this new Dustinland comic during a playdate my kid had this weekend. My wife was upstairs playing referee while I hid downstairs in the basement scribbling in peace. And the irony is that the kids really did seem to have fun by the end. Despite all the fighting and arguing and name-calling, to them, it was a success. I guess kids just don’t know how to be friends. Not sure adults do either, I guess.

Kid Say The asdkljalkadsa…

This week’s new Dustinland comic is just a quick little zinger, straight from the mouth of my child to your ears and eyes. Ah kids, you know, it’s the honesty that really makes it all so entertaining. I don’t even remember the guy he’s talking about in this comic, and that’s probably a good thing because then I would just feel guilty.

Also, if you notice the size of this comic… very small. Perfect for mobile. We’ll see if people enjoy this bite-sized phone edition more than the usual six-panel rant.

Commisernation

This week’s new Dustinland comic is a depressing look at how shitty America has become. I wonder if we can ever fix this? Hard to say. Even if we get rid of the losers causing all this suffering, I think we have done irreparable damage to the nation in the eyes of the world. That being said, if we survive it and come out on top, it’s a good lesson for the world. You can’t sleep on evil. It never goes away, and as for America being the world police, well… who watches the watchmen?
