About This Book
The Cartoon History of the Universe is an ongoing comic book series about the history of the world. It is written and illustrated by American cartoonist, professor, and mathematician Larry Gonick.
Each book in the series explains a period of world history in a loosely chronological order. Though originally published in limited runs as comic books, the series is now published in trade paperback volumes of several hundred pages each
Easily the most distinct characteristic of The Cartoon History of the Universe is Larry Gonick’s vigorous cartoon style. His black lines range from occasional loose crosshatching for a photographic effect to a dominant pen-and-ink squiggle that recalls Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes, Walt Kelly's Pogo, and Albert Uderzo's Astérix.
Readers likely range from bright adolescents to adults. Although cartoons are a staple of children's entertainment, most kids under age 12 would have difficulty with The Cartoon History of the Universe. Larry Gonick's scholarly approach, with its deliberate focus on cerebral humor, shows that the series' intended audience is older.
