''This Modern World'' is a weekly comic strip/political cartoon by Tom Tomorrow AKA Dan Perkins. Appearing in various [[AmericanNewspapers alternative newspapers]] around the US, and online at Daily Kos, the strip takes a very ''very'' liberal look at current events. Often stars Sparky, an acerbic sunglass-wearing penguin, and the Very Nice dog Blinky.

Tomorrow has also written a (non-partisan and theoretically non-political) children's book ''The Very Silly Mayor.''
