Winner announced in product placement auction

Earlier this month I reported that Ruben Bolling had concluded his product placement action in his Tom the Dancing Bug comic. The money raised would be donated to The Committee To Protect Journalist. He reports that the final bid was $277. Yesterday, he announced who the winner was.

After a winner was declared, and I started writing the comic that would include its placement, I realized it would be funnier (and raise almost double the amount of money) if I included the product that came in second place.

The winning products are the book “Star Wars: The Essential Atlas,” published by Del Rey Books, by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry and the book “Keeping Faith With the Constitution,” published by the American Constitution Society, by Goodwin Liu, Pamela S. Karlan and Christopher H. Schroeder.
