Larry Gonick has come out with a new volume in his Cartoon History series, "The Cartoon History of the Modern World, Part I."

Great book, like all of his...

That's great, but I really wish that there were cells for illustration.

Oh man, I'll have to go get that and the cartoon history of the universe III. I have physics and one and two, and read them so much as a kid that I wore out several copies.

It's mentioned obliquely in the second link up top and in wikipedia, but considering that the whole post is based around his work, it's worth putting here on the page that the originator of this work was Mark O'Donnell, who included it in Elementary Education (sorry, couldn't find a good link) a book which contains the funniest index in the world. BTW, O'Donnell went on to win a Tony for writing the book for the Hairspray musical.
