Comics in World History & Cultures: A whirlwind tour of comics around the world and throughout human history!

From ancient African & Mediterranean civilizations, to medieval European history, to ancient Mayan culture and mathematics; from Chinese landscape paintings to modern Japanese history & the great comic book battles of the mid-20th century, and more — This rich worldwide heritage of graphic storytelling speaks to & informs modern readers, and inspires comics artists and fans of all ages.
