Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Images inspired by vintage American advertising, science fiction, and Norman Rockwell idylls are, in his hands, the means by which to keep laughing instead of crying at the feral descent of our politics and culture.

In his weekly cartoon strip, This Modern World, "Tom Tomorrow uses images traced from photographic references (running from 1950s advertising art to recent shots of politicians) and a multipaneled comic-strip format to create a distinctive kind of postmodern editorial cartoon," writes Booklist.

And the results are uproarious-and popular. His cartoons appear in about 130 alternative weeklies-making him the most recognizable cartoonist of the counterculture. His work is also seen in mainstream sources such as The New York Times and Salon, and on bestselling book covers, including Weapons of Mass Deception.

This collection is the very first to present Tom Tomorrow's work in full color, as he originally produces his cartoons.

Synopsis:

A chronicle of the worst years of our lives as seen through the eyes of cartoonist Tom Tomorrow.

For years, Tom Tomorrow's acerbic and hilarious political cartoon, This Modern World, has been among the most recognizable and widely read in alternative press. In his first full-color compilation, Tom looks unflinchingly at what America has become in the years since 9/11 - and where it is likely headed. His cartoons give us a way to laugh instead of cry was we head toward Hell in a Handbasket. This anthology of more than 140 cartoons provides a starkly revealing snapshot of America's political culture at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

Synopsis:

Uproarious cartoons of political satire chronicle the worst years of our lives, as seen through the eyes of popular cartoonist Tom Tomorrow, in his first full-color collection.
