Dear Dinosaur - "An Unpleasant Appointment"

It’s brand new Dear Dinosaur time!  We are just a few weeks away from the finale—the end game begins here!  Dear Dinosaur has finally confronted Otis, the man who ruined his life!  Head over to to check out this semi-epic confrontation!

While many of you would expect Dear Dinosaur to rip Otis to shreds, he seems oddly calm doesn’t he?  Even the normally level-headed Ryan wants to see Otis get his comeuppance, but that doesn’t seem to be what Dear Dinosaur has in mind.  We saw bits of this last week and are building upon it here.  Next week will see this come to a head as we approach the finale, just a few weeks away.

I wanted to keep this one pretty simple, so I didn’t throw in many gags.  I put Otis in all white because I feel that would make him seem “fancier” but still rather douche-y.  Any time I think of a jerk making it big, I immediately picture them in an all-white suit.  It just seems like something an asshat would wear.  I also gave Otis an “I [heart] Joffrey” coffee mug.  Only Otis would like Joffrey.  Jerks.  I also threw in a Piranha Plant from the Mario games and, oddly enough, the Ryan-as-a-centaur painting from Volume I reappears here.  It last showed up in the chain letter strip, where it was owned by Kim Kardashian.  Who knows how Otis received it.

Today’s soundtrack song is “Let the Madness Begin” by metal band Fozzy.  Fozzy is fronted by former pro wrestler Chris Jericho and have a pretty rad old school metal sound.  Check ‘em out.

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!
