Listen to the robot:

Special thanks to Zeke O’Donnell for bringing this to life in one day. Amazing. Genius. Brilliant.

Now go buy my book on Amazon, because a robot told you to!

Despair

I was gone for a couple of weeks on a work trip, so I figured I’d come back with a very serious Dustinland comic for these very serious times.

And it does bring up a lot of good questions. Where DID he come from? And where DID he go? It’s a mystery we’ve been trying to solve for ages. And the answer… well, that’s something we may never know.

Coffee Quandry

Today was a non coffee day for me, although not as bad as the one pictured in this week’s Dustinland comic. I don’t know – why is it that everything fun is somehow bad for you. I wish I could just drink a ton of coffee and get amped up every day, drink a few beers or some whiskey to wind down at night, then pop a Benadryl and sleep like a baby every night. But I can’t do that because that would be unhealthy and all addicty. And then it would stop being fun because it would become a routine. Blah blah blah no fun. I guess when you abstain from things it makes it more fun when you give in. Good times.

A Week In The Life of A Modern Parent AKA Why I Don’t Work Out

I didn’t have much time to draw this week’s Dustinland comic, which is why I drew a comic about not having much time—although drawing this comic may have taken me more time than a regular comic would have anyway. But I didn’t have any brain power left. That’s another thing that comes along with lack of time. Lack of mind. You just hit a wall sometimes. There’s only so much you have left after work and parenthood. Sometimes you just want a beer and a Netflix.

But yeah, the whole AKA Why I Don’t Work Out part of this comic is a bummer. When could I exercise? Basically if you’re not one of those 5:00 AM types, forget it. And that’s not me. And even if it was, you have to go to sleep earlier, so really it’s a trade off, staying in shape vs not hanging out with my wife or ever doing anything I want to do for myself.

Yes, I know, it’s all very first world problems, but so is 95% of what all comedians talk about, so yeah, bite me.

Toy$

As I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, man, toys are expensive. Not all of them. Some are still cheap and plastic. Others are expensive and plastic. And others are expensive and wooden. They’re all probably horrible for the environment, but so is everything we do in this awful capitalist materialist nightmare culture we’ve created. WOAH—don’t know how we just went down that road. Because really I love going to Toys “R” Us. I think I wanted more stuff than my kid did. Man, Legos rule these days.

The People In Your Office – Part 2

Well, there’s a hurricane wreaking havoc on the east coast, and the miserable election cycle is in a fever pitch, so I figured this would be a good time for a silly distraction of a comic about office worker stereotypes.

This is the sequel Part 1, which I drew four years ago. This sort of strip is fun to draw. They’re actually inspired by some of Matt Groening’s Life Is Hell cartoons, which were hugely influential on me in my youth. Or my yoots.
