Larry Gonick's the Cartoon History of the Universe, Book 1

Instead, Gonick fleshes out history into a long yarn, injecting characterization into historical personages, continually reporting gory anecdotes, and focusing on quirky details—all backed up by research—to enliven his subject.

He reports both the greatness of human achievement and acknowledges humanity's savagery.

Note the antic characterization of Alexander the Great and Gonick's use of black ink. In addition to being a straight though unusual history, The Cartoon History helps readers understand historical cause and effect —how the past relates to the present.

It explains the motivations behind human beings' discoveries , inventions , explorations, wars, triumphs, and mistakes. Gonick's editorial aim seeks to do justice to every point of view.

For example, one cartoon panel depicts the barbarism of a group of Huns who had elephants herded off a cliff for their sadistic enjoyment. One Hun exclaims with an oafish grin, "My emotions are valid! Also noteworthy is Gonick's use of caricature. For example, he depicts the weaselly Robert Guiscard , the 11th-century Norman adventurer, as an anthropomorphic weasel , an allusion to Guiscard's name and cunning nature, and depicts Babur , the 16th-century founder of the Mughal Empire with buckteeth an allusion to the theory that the conqueror's name means " beaver ".

Unorthodox citations[ edit ] Consistently enthusiastic in tone, Gonick uses each collection's bibliography to promote historical literacy. At the end of each published collection, Gonick thoroughly cites his sources. But rather than relying upon an ordinary, typeset bibliography, Gonick sustains his unorthodox style and exuberant tone as the Professor takes the reader through a cartoon tour of his sources.

Because much of The Cartoon History covers evolutionary science , physics , astronomy , and ancient history , Gonick has referenced original writings on these subjects, rather than relying on secondary sources or anthologies.
