Comic Strip: This Modern World
This Modern World
is a weekly comic strip/political cartoon by Tom Tomorrow AKA Dan Perkins. Appearing in various 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.
