Tom Tomorrow & This Modern World

Today's Squidoo lens is about editorial cartoonist Tom Tomorrow and his weekly four- to six-panel strip This Modern World. It's a strip that started out in the late 1980s as a collage of clip art with the focus on consumers and work. It developed a focus on media and politics during the first Gulf war when Tomorrow realized the strip could serve as an outlet for his anger about the war. In 2001, the cartoonist branched out into blogging with a blog also called This Modern World.

The strip appears in about 150 publications, mostly alternative ones and online at and (the latter used to be Working Assets).

Tom Tomorrow is the pen name for Dan Perkins, who started the strip while living in San Francisco. He currently lives in Connecticut.
