This graphic novel gives an illustrated, broad look at world history. Everything is done with humor, which is what keeps the book going. The biggest issue with this book is that some things have changed since it was written. There is no longer a brontosaurus and we now know that humans are not descended from neanderthal's, they were actually a totally separate branch on the evolutionary tree. ( )

Z dove into this over a few days. He especially liked the Ancient Egyptian section. ( )

One of the beautiful things about comics is that it is possibly the best medium for combining education and entertainment. No one knows this better than Larry Gonick, whose Cartoon History series spans many subjects.
