I've got a preview copy of Larry Gonick's new book, which picked up where his awesome Cartoon History of the Universe series left off, and I can tell you: it rocks!
The first part of Cartoon History of the Modern World describes the history of the ancient Mexico, the arrival of Columbus in the New World, the Spanish conquest, Protestant Reformation, the American Revolution and so on (it's a history book, people!) and ends with the writing of the US Constitution.
Avid history readers, comic lovers and students who don't want to read dusty history tomes rejoice! The book will go on sale in January 2007.
