This Modern World

One of the most eye-opening, subversive, in-your-face comic strips being published today isn't Dilbert and it's definitely not Doonesbury (not any more, that is) – it's This Modern World, the creation of Tom Tomorrow starring Sparky the angry penguin. This strip is a no-holds-barred attack on the outright STUPIDITY of today's society, the culture that shapes it, the Conspiracy that controls it (especially Corporate America, one of the Conspiracy's most loyal minions), and our own refusal to open our eyes and face the mess we've all gotten ourselves into. Sparky hits a nerve almost every time, and he's sure to upset you sooner or later…but if you've got enough Slack, you'll know why you're being offended. The most recent episode of the strip is displayed at the Salon Magazine Web site.
