Overview

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.
