Description

Tom The Dancing Bug is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and it remains as timely and poignant as ever. Cartoonist and Tom The Dancing Bug creator Ruben Bolling has certainly had plenty of material to work with over the last four years, while winning a Herblock Prize, a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and being named a Pulitzer Prize Finalist. Into The Trumpverse features more than 200 cartoons covering the political landscape during that time. With a foreword by the legendary Neil Gaiman.

"Ruben Bolling's craft and commentary are as powerful and as pointed, as capable of making you laugh while breaking your heart, as they were when we were all so very young."
from Neil Gaiman's foreword

Reviews

"Ruben Bolling has been sending me his secret messages for years, in the form of comics printed first on paper, and then, once paper became extinct, on the internet. I don't know exactly what he's trying to tell me, except he seems to know about everything I find funny, delightful, strange and inexplicable to get my attention, from obscure literary references to negging deep dish pizza. I don't understand exactly what exactly he's trying to say to me, but I still obsessively keep reading, not just because he's hilarious, but because someday I hope to find out who this Tom the bug is, and why he is dancing."
-Peter Sagal


"Delve into the dementia, the dread, and the delightfulness of this collection of Tom the Dancing Bug's strips -- it's history through the lens of a self-loathing insomniac. In a way, it's all of us."
-Patton Oswalt


"Behold the wondrous, whimsical, witty world that is Tom the Dancing Bug! If you're someone who's not a fan of potent political humor with an incisive absurdist twist that's not only consistently funny, but downright therapeutic for an ailing world, I suggest you avoid this book like the plague. For everyone else, it's a MUST-READ!"
-Mark Hamill


"God bless Tom the Dancing Bug! Funny, succinct, and highly original, Ruben Bolling is able to make sense from the chaos and tragedy of America's political nightmares and make you laugh while doing it. An increasingly rare and more difficult feat these extra bleak days. This is worth your time and money. Do it!"
-David Cross

"I am a HUGE fan of Tom the Dancing Bug! It makes me laugh and think of course but it makes me feel better. No kidding, I read it and I think, someone else thinks like me, only funnier and better informed and I feel good. Thank you Ruben Bolling for giving us Tom The Dancing Bug."
-Gary Gulman


"That fact that Tom the bug can keep dancing in this day and age is a testament to Ruben Bolling's skills as a cartoonist!"
-Seth Meyers
