Read in February, 2009

While I didn't read this cover-to-cover, I did go through it in a fairly though scan. I was very amused.

((for the record: I didn't read it cover to cover because I am not really into graphic novels/comics. It's just not my thing. Another time, perhaps.))

There is plenty of satire and hilarity involved with the White take-over of indigenous nations. Bitterly funny stuff. Gonick seems to spare no one's dignity. This is good. Most historians take history FAR too seriously.

I will be revisiting this one when my kid(s) are older and we delve into the History of Western Civilization.
