What’s the deal with Dash Shaw’s Blind Date comics?

Blind Date - Dash Shaw

You saw the first one in Mome Vol. 16 and The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century A.D., and the second one appears in Mome Vol. 20 next month. If you've been asking yourself things like "are these for real?" or "why?" or "huh?", Dash explains it all.
