Learning from Sherman the shark

Cartoonist Jim Toomey created the comic strip Sherman’s Lagoon, a wry look at underwater life starring Sherman the talking shark. As he sketches some of his favorite sea creatures live onstage, Toomey shares his love of the ocean and the stories it can tell.

    I also don’t like Michael Shermer’s style, but to call him a shark…I don’t know… 🙂

    Hi, long-time lurker on ScienceBlogs, first-time commenter.

    This brought back memories. Sherman’s Lagoon was one of my favorite comic strips as a kid, but I had totally forgotten about it until now.
