DEAR DINOSAUR - Happiness is an Empty Bottle

Hey there Dear Dinosaur fans!  It's a brand new Thursday and that means a brand new Dear Dinosaur!  Head over to to read the strip, then enjoy today's official commentary.

I have to be 100% honest here and let you folks know that I'm really disappointed with today's comic.  The jokes are solid and the art isn't bad, but the scan totally sucks.  I've mentioned this before, but I take the Dear Dinosaur pages to a local store for scanning and 9 times out of 10, I'm happy with the results and, if I'm not, I usually have enough time to go back for a re-scan.  Unfortunately, due to hectic schedule this week, I did not even look at today's scan until late Wednesday night--long after the store closed.  The scan was clearly done in black-and-white, which completely messed up the gray tones that I very carefully put together.  As such, this really looks like shit and I apologize.  I'll post the corrected version next week!

This week's strip is makes a lot of jokes about Peanuts, which is one of my favorite comics of all time, despite how schmaltzy it is.  I also gave Trips the Triceratops a "Mouse Rat" shirt, which is a reference to Andy Dwyer's band on Parks and Recreation.  

Today's soundtrack song is "You and Me and the Bottle Makes Three" by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.  I went through a huge swing phase in high school thanks to BBVD that was pretty ridiculous.  This song was my introduction to them and remains a favorite of mine!

Finally, this week’s strip, along with many others is for sale!  If you’d like to buy the original 11 x 17 art, it’s only $10 plus $3 shipping anywhere in the US.  Shoot me an email at if you are interested!
