9780312209742: When Penguins Attack!

As the country heads into the non-stop madness of a presidential election, there is nothing that it needs more than a dose of Tom Tomorrow's social and political satire. Read by more than twenty million readers, Tomorrow has his finger on the pulse of the times, to enthrall or enrage - and occasionally both - with his work. When Penguins Attack!!! brings back Sparky (the most dyspeptic cartoon animal in the business) and the rest of the cast as Tomorrow casts his perenially jaundiced eye on politics, the media, social trends, and everything else. So sit back and settle in, for Tomorrow is the cartoonist for today.

About the Author:

Tom Tomorrow's work has appeared in The Nation, The New York Times, U.S. News Report, Salon, and The New Yorker as well as weekly in more than 100 newspapers across the country. He is the winner of the 1997 RFK Journalism Award. Word has it that he lives in New York City.

Review:

"Tom Tomorrow is more than a cartoonist. He's a multi-media columnist, saying infinitely more with a combination of words and images than with words alone. And unlike even the best traditional political cartoonists, he does more than come up with clever images or wordplay to make a humorous political point. His strip informs." --New Haven Advocate

"Tomorrow takes wide, powerful swipes at our conspicuous consumerism, at the way mainstream media distort events, and how we all, whether we admit it or not, let the media interpret reality for us. Pretty heady stuff for cartoons. And awfully entertaining to boot." --Creative Loafing

"Sparky the Penguin is among the best of the new generation." --San Francisco Examiner
