Much Abird About Nothing is the first issue of the five-book series Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Comic Book. It is written by Wendy Xu, illustrated by Ryan Maniulit, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and released on August 29, 2018.


It's college reunion time! Who'd have thought that it's already been fifteen years since Keg-Stand Craig and the new Dad on the block went to college? This one's like a buddy cop comedy, only there are no cops and more avoding old flames while trying to stifle an existential breakdown, bro.



Dad and Amanda prepared a batter of brownies in the kitchen while conversing about his college reunion. While he was teased by his daughter, he gave her money for a pizza before changing and leaving for the reunion, begging her to order a healthy side salad with a pepperoni.

Walking down the cul-de-sac to Craig's house, Dad knocked and was greeted with a sweaty Craig who explained that he had previously thought he could perform some exercising reps. Waiting for his friend to shower, Dad makes notice of the house's cleanliness, contemplating where the girls had gone. A sip of lemon-water from the fridge, he was called to sort a clothing issue. Appropriately dressed, the two walk into the garage and enter the van. Dad questioned where the girls were, to which Craig replied that they were with their grandmother, his mother; they conversed about having dinner with her since she had moved into Maple Bay.

The van arrives in the packed parking lot of Manano's near the college. Craig grew nervous in the driver seat, acknowledging that his ex-lover Ashley would be attending the reunion and fearing questions about their relationship. Dad calmed and reassured him that the gathering would be a breeze before offering his hand.
