Boing Boing's own Ruben Bolling has two new Tom the Dancing Bug books coming out next month.
Clover Press's Complete Tom the Dancing Bug program continues with Volume 6: Tom the Dancing Bug Awakens, which collects every one of Ruben's weekly comic strip installments (plus other material) from 2012-2015.
The book is full of the whole array of Tom the Dancing Bug's cast of characters, formats and tropes, like Chagrin Falls, Lucky Ducky, God-Man, and Super-Fun-Pak Comix.
Ruben says, "This book covers the years of a Democratic president grappling with openly destructive Republicans in Congress, plus racism, climate change, and the looming threat of a Donald Trump candidacy. So it's got nothing to do with today."
The book's back cover:
Also coming out next month is another Tom the Dancing Bug book: Tom the Dancing Bug, Without the Bad Ones.
This book collects the very best of Tom the Dancing Bug's entire 31-year history, from its early days of murderous fetuses, nap-taking aliens, and religious babies…
… to the latest comics of today's grim post-Trump (and pre-Trump?) era.
