Overview

Rich Tennant is clearly the "father of the computer cartoon." (Forbes ASAP). When the creator introduced his technology-oriented cartoon panel in the early 80s, computers hadn't yet achieved the status they enjoy today. Now that nearly everyone's got them, The 5th Wave has become a mirror of our dubious attempts to live with, and control them.In Downloaded, Tennant is right on target, and even now more people will be able to relate to the way computers are changing the way we work, live, and play. He features a teacher who sends her students on-line to research Native American culture and discount fares to Hawaii; the optometrist whose Web site's intense graphics cause eye strain; and Santa downloading presents into a slow 14.4K chimney. His clever cartoons give everyone tethered to a computer a delightfully skewed way to view the world.
