"Cartoon History of the Modern World" is a wickedly funny take on modern history.

Volume I of the "Carton History of the Modern World" picks up where Gonick's bestselling "Cartoon History of the Universe" left off with Christopher Columbus about to set sail on his fateful voyage to the New World.
The book also opens with the history of Aztec and Inca, the empires in Asia, and the formation of the first fully global system of trade and ideas.
