About the Author

Jim Toomey was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia. He launched Sherman's Lagoon in 1991, and was picked up by Creators Syndicate later that year. An engineer, a philosopher, a surfer, a scuba diver, and a sailor, Toomey lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.

He has been twice awarded the Environmental Hero Award, given by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration “for using art and humor to conserve and protect our marine heritage.”

Format: Paperback
These are not your typical cuddly cartoon characters. Sharks eat other fish--and people--with regularity. (The fish refer to people as "hairless beach apes.") But they carry on like people most of the time: ordering from catalogs (Sharker Image), watching TV, taking trips to exotic (for them) places. The guy who writes this has a really funny turn of mind, and each character has a well-developed personality. Take a look at the current strips at [...] if you want.

Once in a blue moon there comes a cartoonist and character that just tickles every part of your senses. This does not happen very often in this genre as the talent to illustrate, deliver the punch line, maintain a sense of civility and not insult the reader's intelligence has to be done all at the same time. Calvin and Hobbes was one. Sherman's gang is another. Enjoy this before this gets shelved forever into the museum of pure intelligent humor. Did I say intelligent?

A kind of surreal atmosphere/personages created by without doubt a very imaginative mind. I really enjoyed the VARIETY of themes and approach of the different characters wich are'nt linear or flat at all.
Actually this book is a collection wich contains strips of other books and some wich are'nt included on the previous one's. If you enjoy this one go for the rest as I did (Quite the Sherman's approach to life mind...).
INNOVATIVE/BRILLIANT.

Do not forget to have a go at the other 8 volumes... the next one due the first of September (the better way to go back to work...).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

It's what it says it is March 11 2009
By Alvin T. Lao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have the complete collection of Garfield, Asterix, Tintin and other comic books and this is my first Sherman's Lagoon. It's a good deal because for a comic freak like myself, it's getting hard to get tickled by daily comic strip and yet this collection was able to make me snicker on almost every page. So why buy the whole collection when you can get the best stuff in one book? If you are a comic-lover, you've got to get a copy of this one.
Excellent book Feb. 16 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Covers many great years of shark-ness. The strips jump around a bit to cover all the years, but still very readable.
