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.

Hilarious book-Another keeper for the cartoon lover! Oct. 15 2012
By UniversityDoc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another cartoon I enjoy reading. I miss reading it in the daily news, as the small town we now live in has unreliable rural newspaper delivery. Carriers are lazy and inconsistent and the newspaper does nothing about it, so I had to cancel my subscription. I went searching for Sherman's Lagoon and found this as one of several. I chose this one because I enjoy compilations. I began reading this one last week and it is funny. I had to stifle my laughter on more than one occasion due to other people in the house are sleeping. If you enjoy a good laugh, and are a fan of cartoons, especially Sherman and friends, I highly recommend this one without hesitation. This is a cute book. This book is a mix of color and black and white comics from 1991 to 2001. All in all, this was a worthwhile purchase.
The Laughs Don't Stop Dec 31 2013
By Louie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jim Toomey's collection of "Greatest Hits and Near Misses" is a sure way to break up the dismal days of winter cold and shorter periods of daylight. The Lagoon is full of all of the people you love and hate and the full range of characters in between - all in the form of creatures of the sea that keep the truth about ourselves from becoming too miserably close to home to be able to laugh at. Whenever I'm not feeling well, I take a dose of Jim Toomey and "Sherman's Lagoon" since laughter is definitely the best medicine around. This collection is a concentrated dose of medicine that may cause serious side aches from all of the laughing, but in the end you will feel much better for having taken it in with Sherman size gulps of the contents of each page.

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.
