This is the official web site of Larry Gonick, the Overeducated Cartoonist! Since the 1970s, I’ve been creating Cartoon Histories, Cartoon Guides, and other comics that explore Big Subjects. Why such heavy stuff? I have the crazy idea that some stories work best in the medium of comics‚ the dream that people will be better-informed by reading them‚ the hope that educated citizens can make wise decisions about the future of the human community. I’m only trying to save the world here!
