On the eve of the Stumptown Comics Fest, Village Voice cartoonists Jen Sorensen and Matt Bors will be presenting a political cartoon extravaganza at Powell's City of Books on Burnside. The event is in celebration of Jen's new book, Slowpoke: One Nation, Oh My God!
One Nation, Oh My God! is the latest collection of Sorensen's cartoons, featuring 150 of her provocative strips along with artist commentary. This volume chronicles our country's descent into the twilight of democracy zone, tackling everything from the Antique Ideology Roadshow to the rise of virtual donuts. Of the collection, Tom Tomorrow says "Jen Sorensen is a maniacal genius."
Jen Sorensen is the creator of the comic "Slowpoke" which appears in the Village Voice and other altweeklies around the country. She has won several awards from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
Matt Bors is the creator of the comic "Idiot Box" which appears in the Village Voice and other altweeklies around the country. He also draws the strip "Civil Discourse" for the ACLU, and "War is Boring" with war correspondent David Axe.
