A comic look at the rise and fall of the world’s great empires, Long Story Short starts at the beginning. After a quick takedown of cavemen, Quinn moves through Greeks and Romans (smart guys vs. tough guys) and then trudges into the Dark Ages. He targets, among others, Latin America (Maya, Inca, those pesky conquistadors), the Middle East, the tribes of Africa and moves all the way through to the British Empire (with its longstanding crush on France) and us, the Walmart-loving, Snooki-watching American empire we are today.
