Well done for you guys!

Hey, I've loved Tom Tomorrow for ages, and now - thanks to your having him - I have learned about the Pulse. So thanks!

Great interview!

I've been reading This Modern World since back before there WAS an internet to speak of and each week i still find his work helping to remind me that i am NOT in fact crazy!
And, Mr. Perkins does a great job in boiling down extremely complex political wackiness into several panels and a fair though limited number of words. And makes me laugh while he does it. I'm sounding like Blinky the dog, but This Modern World sure is swell!
All hail Sparky the Wonder Penguin!

Tom Tomorrow rocks! Good interview. And good for The Pulse to be supporting and spreading his work!

TMW and The Pulse - Winning Combo for The Pulse Readers

I'm a guy in Houston, but I've been following Dan's (Tom's) work for nearly as long as he's been creating it.

Well done, Pulse...and if you readers out there are not familiar with This Modern World, I'm here to tell you that Tom Tomorrow is to cartooning what George Carlin was to comedy; not merely an artist at the pinnacle of his art but a comedic soothsayer.

Mel Brooks introduced the term "Standup Philosopher" in one of his movies, and I instantly thought of Mr. Carlin when I heard it. Through a different medium - the weekly political cartoon - Mr. Tomorrow achieves the same effect, only without the necessity of audio. He knows just when to apply ridicule or compassion and in the precise amounts as the events of the day call for them.

Enjoy reading TMW on a weekly basis, Chattanooga, and here's to a long partnership.

I'm so happy you've initiated a comics page! This art form is vitally important, and this decision elevates you among news outlets.
