1 Review
From its modest beginnings in the 'zine world, Tom Tomorrow's cartoons have steadily grown into one of the most recognizible and widely read features in the American press. Appearing regularly in U.S. News and World Report, The Nation, The New York Times, and more than one hundred other magazines and newspapers, as well as on the web on such popular sites as Salon, Tom Tomorrow's social and political satire is read by more than twenty million people weekly. Frequently cited in reader polls as one of the most popular features in papers and magazines that feature him, Tom Tomorrow has shown that he has his finger on the pulse of a disenchanted American populace-and the rare ability to infuriate many of the rest. Now, to the delight of new fans and old, Penguin Soup for the Soul brings together Sparky, the Wonder Penguin (the most acerbic, cantankerous cartoon animal in the comics business), Biff, and Betty, not to mention the entire cast of modern America-ranging from Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich to media pundits and the entire 105th Congress. So, take a deep breath and prepare for yet another excursion into Tomorrowland. . .
