This Modern World

This Modern World is a weekly satirical comic strip by cartoonist and political commentator Tom Tomorrow (aka Dan Perkins) that covers current events from a liberal point of view. Tomorrow also runs a weblog that informs readers about stories of interest, often presented as a follow up to his cartoons.

"'This Modern World is drawn in a distinctive retro style, with brightly colored illustrations that often look as if they would be at home in an 1950's advertisement. The 50's theme continues to the dialouge of his human characters which is often bubbly, over-enthusiastic, and naive. The stupidity of the humans is countered by Sparky, a fast-talking penguin with sunglasses who provides much of the strip's political commentary.
