The downward spiral

Regular readers of this site are aware that these are not good days for alt-cartooning. The latest bad news: citing budgetary constraints, Salon is dropping my friend Ruben Bolling’s fantastic Tom the Dancing Bug strip. I find this extraordinarily depressing for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that TTDB (as we insiders call it) is the cartoon my own cartoon wishes it could be when it grows up.

Ruben is looking for a new home on the web, but in the meantime you can always find his comics at his ucomics page, which I strongly encourage you to bookmark.
