"Sly, quick and smart, Jen Sorensen's comic strip is nothing like its name. So don't be deceived–Slowpoke is going places."—Garry Trudeau, creator of Doonesbury
"Sorensen's images are cuddly from a distance, but so are giant pandas until they grab you and crush your head to bits."Washington City Paper
In this age of ever more visually-oriented media, comics make great content. A good cartoon appearing regularly in a publication cultivates a devoted readership over time; we cartoonists know this, because we hear from your readers. Cartoons are also a great value, with a high bang-to-buck ratio.
With a hard-hitting yet whimsical take on politics, technology, and cultural trends, Slowpoke has won six Association of Alternative Newsweeklies awards, including First Place in 2005.
Slowpoke clients include:
- Daily Kos
- LA Times
- Village Voice
- Ms. Magazine
- The Progressive Magazine
- Funny Times
- Metro Silicon Valley
- Kaiser Health News ...and many more alternative weeklies!
Slowpoke is sent every week by email, and is available in both B&W and color. Contact jen at slowpokecomics dot com for more info!
