For over fifteen years, Tom Tomorrow has been providing his uniquely acerbic, witty, and altogether clearheaded view of media, politics, and overall society in his syndicated cartoon. With an ever increasing fan base, an expanding number of publications who regularly feature his work, one of the most popular and most visited web-logs (www.thismodernworld.com), the time is now for The Great Big Book of Tomorrow. This massive collection of Tomorrow's greatest hits, unseen gems and obscurities, new material and color section is the so far definitive collection of one of the most popular 'underground' cartoonists ever--a delight to long-time fans and new readers alike.

Tom Tomorrow is the nom de cartoon of Dan Perkins. His work appears in The Nation, The New York Times, Salon, and The New Yorker as well as 150 newspapers weekly. He is the winner of the 1997 RFK Journalism Award for Cartooning. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Tomorrow's "This Modern World" has been a reliable source of vitriolic political satire in alternative weeklies for 15 years, and, more recently, on Salon.com. Tomorrow's distinctive style involves photocopying images in sources ranging from 1950s advertising art to recent photos and setting them in text-heavy, multipanel strips. As distinctive as the strip looks, it is the content that separates Tomorrow from the pack. An unabashed Leftie, Tomorrow offers searing indictments of rapacious corporations, overbearing conservatives, and weak-kneed liberals (just to cite his most frequent targets) that stand in sharp relief to the anemic commentary that passes for most editorial cartooning. Besides a generous assortment of cartoons lambasting three presidential administrations, this career retrospective includes early zine pieces in which Tomorrow developed his style as well as his skepticism about the corporate world and consumerism, and a section of color work for the New Yorker and other national publications. Tomorrow's retro look draws readers in, his acerbic humor keeps them coming back, and his wry intelligence just might make them think. Gordon Flagg
