This series is no less ambitious than a comics-format distillation of all of known history. Larry Gonick has undertaken the job of relating history through panels, word balloons, and captions, and he succeeds brilliantly. This series is delightful and informative, and never gets bogged down in tedious facts or dates.

Larry Gonick has done other comics, including a history of the United States, and comics about particular science fields, but this is his finest work. Gonick presents the concepts of the ancient world in modern one-liners and puns, and the effect keeps the interest up through the sometimes complicated stories.
