Ruben Bolling raises $277 for product placement

About a month ago, I reported that Ruben Bolling was auctioning off space in his Tom The Dancing Bug for a product placement. The proceeds are to be donated to “The Committee To Protect Journalist.” He reports that the final bid was $277, but did not disclose the winner.

The product will run in an “unobtrusively yet noticeably placed in an upcoming ‘Super-Fun-Pak Comix’ installment of the comic strip.”

That would be Ruben Bolling, not Tom Tomorrow.

Gee, if I’d known it’d go for that little, I might’ve bid on it myself. Someone might have gotten themselves a bargain.

For a good cause, of course.

I could have used the publicity. Maybe Garfield will do it next.

Ah well. I was in for Hogan’s Alley but got outbid. Still, it was fun just to be part of!
