Attention, Cartoon Lovers
You must, you must, you must buy Tom Tomorrow's new book!
Buy it from Powells, buy it from Amazon, buy it in your local bookstore. Why, you ask? If you like my cartoons, how could you not like his cartoons? If you loved his previous books, you love this one even more, it has special color pages, old hits, new stuff, obscurities and rarities, 208 fun-packed pages, kids. Plus, the book's current Amazon sales rank as I write this is 30--BEHIND ANN COULTER. How can you let Ann Coulter sell more books than Tom Tomorrow? That is just WRONG. Come on, even anti-free-market lefties like to compete in the marketplace!
And if you need a personal testimonial, I own all of Tom's books except this latest one (a tragedy to be remedied as soon as it arrives in the mail) and I can promise that they have indeed improved my life in countless ways and made me a better, if more cynical, human being. I first saw his cartoons in the Liberal Opinion back when I was a wee girl of 15 or so, and I've been a devoted reader ever since. If it weren't for the work of people like Tom Tomorrow (you mean it's OK to put WORDS in a cartoon?!), it might never have occurred to me to put cartooning pen to paper, or, for that matter, to blog.
But as they used to say on Reading Rainbow, you don't have to take my word for it: Tom has his own bookselling plea.
And while you're in a bookbuying mood, there are only 40 or so copies of my own modest little cartoon book left, so... (update: the book is now sold out)
