Tom the Dancing Bug cartoon detective absolutely dies

This week’s Tom the Dancing Bug has a tragic end for a character who has, well, ended before (17 times), but this time the death will be “absolutely final.” Those who may be shocked by the news may take comfort that the Sam Roland character’s death has been called “absolutely final” at least four other times and that many other comic characters have risen from the dead: Superman and Sherlock Holmes according to Ruben Bolling.

Says Ruben:

“In order to be true to the integrity of Sam Roland’s story arc, I knew he had to be killed, and that I then had to publicize his death to as many media outlets as possible.”
