Reviews

'Suddenly the Middle Ages make coherent sense, plus nifty cartoons and some good gags!' * Sir Tony Robinson *
'Dr. Janega brings her expertise to bear, dispelling myths about the Dark Ages; spilling all the details about the rise and fall of cities, states, and empires; and introducing readers to an eclectic cast of characters from history (including some rather naughty saints). ... Black-and-white illustrations by Emmanuel, drawn in a mix of modern and medieval styles, add humor and useful context to the text. ... this comic offers an enjoyable, comedic entryway into understanding the Middle Ages.' * Booklist *
'A lovely breeze through a millennium of history ... It's a lot of fun.' * Five Books *
'Precise, informative, digestible and witty ... It all adds up to an utterly essential volume for history buffs, whether they're diving into the medieval period for the first time or just brushing up on a few things.' * BookPage *
