Larry Gonick speaks

Published On September 28, 2009 | By Joe Gordon | Comics

Via Tom at Comics Reporter comes this video of Larry Gonick discussing his Cartoon History series, which I have to say I’ve loved for years and recommended to parents trying to get reluctant younger readers to get into history in an enjoyable way (like the Horrible Histories Larry’s works are funny but factual). The second volume of his Cartoon History of the Modern World is due next month; you can read an interview I had with Larry back before the first volume was about to hit the shelves here.
