Descriere:

In seven wild and witty chapters, cartoonist Larry Gonick takes us on an uproarious joyride through the ancient world. Larry Gonick's brilliant insights, exuberant humor, and delightful drawings combine to make a truly unique work that is sure to be a valuable resource as well as a great escape for all ages. Black-and-white illustrations throughout.

An entertaining and informative illustrated guide that makes world history accessible, appealing, and funny.

One of the beautiful things about comics is that it is possibly the best medium for combining education and entertainment. No one knows this better than Larry Gonick, whose "Cartoon History" series spans many subjects. Whether you are a fan of history, comics, or Larry Gonick's books, "The Cartoon History of the Universe Vol. 1" is a great place to start. Part I contains volumes 1 to 7, from the Big Bang to Alexander the Great.

Larry Gonick's hilariously informative history of the planet is a great addition to the growing field of comics trade books. Starting with the Big Bang theory and moving on to the "evolution of everything," he manages to cover three billion years -- from the origins of cellular life to the fossil and dinosaur periods that followed, right up to the first appearance of hominids -- all with casual erudition, silly humor and delightfully cartoony black-and-white drawings. But Larry Gonick doesn't stop there. He reinstates the record of women (their theoretical role in the development of agriculture and the matrilineal clans of the neolithic era) as well as accurately restoring black racial characteristics to the Egyptian dynasties. He also surveys other highly evolved ancient civilizations: the Sumerians, the Hittites, the Assyrians and the Israelites. Larry Gonick cheerfully conjures rulers, warriors and slaves alike, many stumbling around in the desert, as they form the foundations for Western civilization.
