“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

“Jen Sorensen is a maniacal genius, gleefully exposing the mendacity which lurks behind conventional wisdom, glib newscasters, celebrity culture, Republican doublespeak, and other ills of our age. I can’t recommend her work highly enough.”—Tom Tomorrow

“In a world that seems to get murkier by the minute, Slowpoke is a freakin’ beacon of lucidity.”—Alison Bechdel

Slowpoke: One Nation, Oh My God! is the latest collection from award-winning cartoonist Jen Sorensen, and features her best recent work, along with her sharply insightful commentary. Deploying Sorensen’s trademark brand of absurdist humor, this collection chronicles our country’s not-so-gradual demise, lambastes political hypocrisies, and also takes on the latest cultural trends and techno-gadgets. One Nation, Oh My God! also features an introduction by Ruben Bolling, creator of Tom the Dancing Bug.

Jen Sorensen is the cartoonist behind Slowpoke, a weekly strip which appears in the The Village Voice and many other alternative newspapers around the country. Slowpoke is also featured in the Funny Times,,,, and has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The American Prospect, and Ms. Magazine. The strip has won several awards from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, including first place in 2005.
