On today's show I talk to cartoonist Ruben Bolling. A lawyer by trade, Ruben is also the author of the amazing syndicated comic Tom the Dancing Bug, which has been running since 1990. While mostly a political cartoon like This Modern World, Tom the Dancing Bug has no standard format, sometimes critiquing the current plutocracy, sometimes just being surreal and absurd. The comic has been collected in three anthologies, and there's also a fan club called the Inner Hive which helps support Ruben as well. Join it today!
