Scrubbed

I liked this interview with John C. McGinley on Kevin Pollack's Chat Show podcast.  John went to my high school, dear old Millburn High, a few years ahead of me.  I remember him being just a little bit like his character on Scrubs.

Wear Orange

I was happy to be asked to wrangle a few cartoonists to participate in Everytown's Wear Orange campaign in support of today's National Gun Violence Awareness Day.  I greatly appreciate the work of Garry Trudeau, Lincoln Peirce, Dana Simpson, Jerry Scott, Rick Kirkland and Jim Borgman in support of this cause.

ALIEN INVASION IN MY BACKYARD GETS BOING-BOINGED AND WINKED!

What a wonderful review of Alien Invasion in My Backyard by Rob Trevino, on BoingBoing.net and WinkBooks.net

 

Tumblr_o3qejsie0z1t3i99fo1_1280

 

"Kids know the truth: The mysteries aren’t out there, they’re right here. They are in every bump from the attic, that weird locked door in the basement, and, especially, the often mystifying backyard. Kids know that’s where the real mysteries lie, and we’re all lucky that Ruben Bolling knows it, too."

 

"I enjoyed reading every moment of this book and cannot wait until I can share it with my own little adventurer."

JOIN THE INNER HIVE, HELP JOURNALISTS AT RISK, WORLDWIDE

May 3, 2016

In honor of World Press Freedom Day, and in conjunction with this week's comic about Freedom of Speech in Turkey (to which only members of the INNER HIVE have exclusive access today) (5/4 UPDATE: The comic strip is now online at Boing Boing):

 

--

If you were thinking about joining Tom the Dancing Bug's INNER HIVE, now's the time to do it.

 

 

For the rest of the month of May, 125% of your INNER HIVE sign-up charge will be donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which promotes press freedom worldwide.

 

Cpj

 

When you join the INNER HIVE, you get each week's Tom the Dancing Bug comic emailed to you at least one day before it's published, along with commentary, puns, apologies, preliminary art, palindromes, additional comics, "content", yummy recipes, architectural blueprints, secret treasure maps, etc.  The cost of membership is only $11.95 per six months.

 

And this month, when you pay that $11.95 for the first six months, $15 will be donated to help defend the rights of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.  I believe that promoting a free press is one of the most effective ways to help the citizens of repressive nations, by exposing corruption, government malfeasance and war crimes.

 

How else can you get stupid comics a day before anyone else AND help the brave journalists of world make their countries a better place to live?

 

To join the INNER HIVE and help the Committee to Protect Journalists, click here.

For more information on the Committee to Protect Journalists, click here.

 

Thanks,

Rb

5/4 UPDATE:

We celebrate the fantastic news of the release from prison the Iranian artist Atena Farghadani! Here is the Tom the Dancing Bug comic strip about her imprisonment, published last year.

 

This is a testament to the power of international pressure asserted by the Committee to Protect Journalists and other organizations that can actually help journalists and artists victimized by repressive regimes.
