Product Description

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."

HASH(0xa41058dc) out of 5 stars Fun With the Fishes Dec 16 2004
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Format: Paperback
This eighth collection of Sherman's Lagoon proves that the waters of creativity have not dried up. Although the back cover may be a little disturbing to some, most of the contents are just plain fun. Some of this volume's story arcs include:

Sherman starts a band

Fear Factor Comes to the Lagoon

Hawthorne starts a fitness center

Antiques Roadshow comes to the lagoon

Fillmore succeeds at Ascension Island

The Hawaiian vacation

And lots more including appearances by many old favorite characters. If you are looking for a fun read and some chuckles, you won't go wrong with this one.

HASH(0xa4105930) out of 5 stars Catch of the Day: Sherman's Lagoon Collection #8 Dec 17 2004
By Jerry R. Wells - Published on
Format: Paperback
I personally think Jim Toomey is the consistently funniest cartoonist working today.

When I open my morning paper, I go right to Sherman's Lagoon first thing, because I know it is going to make me laugh.

This collection illustrates just how funny man-eating sharks can be, especially when supported by crabby con-artist crabs, bookish sea turtles and polar Bear party animals.

I put Sherman's Lagoon on the same plane as Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County and the Far Side: classics all.

HASH(0xa4105d68) out of 5 stars under the sea hi-jinks Nov. 3 2004
By Mary Zurlinden - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you've ever wondered what the fish in the documentaries do when the cameras are off, then this is the book series for you. From the first page of the book, you are trasported to Kapupu Island Lagoon and the world of Sherman, a not so Great White shark, his femenist wife, a sea turtle who tries and fails in the mating game, a money hungry, federally watched hermit crab, and an uber-hacker fish who is a member of anarchy anonymous. Their world parallels humanity. Its a riot!!!!

We met Sherman & Friends in the SFO Chronicle, but they aren't in our local newspaper, so we acquire each collection as it is published. Jim Toomey's undersea cartoons are laugh-out-loud for our family. Then they go into the sailboat's library.
HASH(0xa41070f0) out of 5 stars It's Sherman's Lagoon...of course it's great Aug. 7 2010
By Eric DiPier - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the best comic strip out there, a worthy successor to Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes. If you've never read it, give it a try...if you already like it, you will love this book.
