Slowpoke: One Nation, Oh My God!
Synopses & Reviews
Slowpoke: One Nation, Oh My God!is the third book-length collection from award-winning cartoonist Jen Sorensen, and features her best work from 20042008, along with her sharply insightful commentary. Deploying Sorensen's trademark brand of absurdist humor, this collection chronicles our country's not-so-gradual demise, lambastes political hypocrisies, and also takes on the latest cultural trends and techno-gadgets. One Nation, Oh My God!also features an introduction by Ruben Bolling, creator of Tom the Dancing Bug.
"Jen Sorensen is a maniacal genius, gleefully exposing the mendacity which lurks behind conventional wisdom, glib newscasters, celebrity culture, Republican doublespeak, and other ills of our age. I can't recommend her work highly enough." Tom Tomorrow
"In a world that seems to get murkier by the minute, Slowpokeis a freakin' beacon of lucidity." Alison Bechdel
"I want to live in an America where Slowpokeis published in every newspaper. It's smart and sharp." David Rees, creator of Get Your War On
"All life is a blur of Republicans and meat. Slowpoke roasts them both over the coals until they're ready for human consumption — with gusto!" Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead
"Sorensen is brilliant, scathing, hilarious, cruel, everything good about cartooning." Ted Rall
