Why should kids get all the best books? They can't even read.

History Shapes is an educational series made for adults with the minds of children.

Expect shiny cartoons on dusty topics 2 or 3 times a week.

I do an email roundup of every cartoon published during the week called Saturday Morning Cartoons. It's sent out every Saturday morning, free of charge.

If you can't wait until Saturday to get your cartoon fix sign up for the History Shapes, NOW! newsletter, which is also zero dollars. You'll get notified the minute new cartoons go live and never miss another History Shapes moment.

I hate spam too, so I only send what you want to get. Unsubscribe anytime.

Help keep the show going

For those of you who'd like to support the cartoon please consider joining The History Shapes Club. It's just $5 a month and is currently the only source of revenue for the entire operation. You'll get a handful of neat perks, to boot.
