Man Evolved from Turtles

Kate Beaton explains Charles Darwin‘s original theory of evolution.

And if a cartoon says so, then it *must* be true.

    The cartoon would be super cool if the middle person had some green leaves as clothes and the final one was an army man in camo green!

    Eep Hemant looks like you forgot to close a tag.

    Mr, I am horribly offended by your insulting of my religion. Man DID evolve from turtles. I can prove this tenfold with this image right here: . As you can see, Man was made in GODs image, and since god is a giant turtle, I am god. I am GodTurtle. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Jesus in a halfshell!

    It’s turtles all the way down.

    (HAHA!!! I’m the first one with THAT reference, which is hard to do on an atheist board.)

    Hemant, this butchered bit of yer code:
    <a href=”%3Ca%20href=” http:=””“” darkhorsepresents?issuenum=”20& amp;storynum=4& quot;”></a>“&amp; gt; <img …>

    [a few spaces were added to the code to get it to show in the comment here]

    …should be:
    <a href=”″><img …></a>

    …or possibly:
    <a href=””><img …></a>

    …and my comment submission is finally successful, jeez….

    … and then who evolved from rats and became Splinter?

  • Zarathustra

    Ah, but which came first, the turtle or the egg?

  • Hemant Mehta

    Fixed! Sorry for the trouble

    Where’s my shell!? I demand a shell, now.

    It this serious or satire?

  • mackrelmint

    this is satire. The first panel is labelled “Historical Inaccuracy” under the title. Kate’s one of my favourite Canadian cartoonists and her series of history comics are definitely worth checking out. see

    That would explain where Rush Limbaugh came from.
