Kids playing cartoon war games.

The first nine issues of "Cartoon History of the Universe". I hadn't realized they were comics. I got the compiled book back in high school. There are now five books in this series. Plus a history of the United States and guides to other subjects. I recommend them all after you read what's on this page for free. [link]

I own all three Volumes of the Cartoon History of the Universe by Larry Gonick, both of the C.H. of the Modern Age, and he has also done a History of the United States.

I've learned more history from those books than all the classes I ever took in high school or college.
