Larry Gonick's Cartoon History of the Modern World.

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.

Actually the book was about the modern history of the world, American history is only a small part of it (despite my picking of this particular cartoon).

The "break point" for Part I also happened to be the writing of the US Constitution.
