'Crazy Is The New Normal' by Tom Tomorrow is a collection of recent strips from 2014 into part of 2016. They inclde lots about the recent US Presidential campaigns.
I'm familiar with Tom Tomorrow and I read his comic if I run across it. I don't fully agree with his politics, but I find his humor worthwhile. It is definitely more left-leaning, so if you can't find lots of comics about Donald Trump and pro-gun politics funny, then you probably want to keep moving. There are rednecks and right wing newscasters and climate change deniers.
Current event comics are funnier in the context of when they take place. The fact that the election hasn't happened as I write this still makes this collection current, but if everyone feels the way I do, we are probably all tired of the subject. I've also read Tom Tomorrow in the context of an independent paper. One strip is funny. Many in a row starts to feel a bit overwhelming. I liked this collection, but there are other cartoon collections that I would prefer over this one.
I received a review copy of thsi graphic novel from IDW Publishing, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
