Hark! a Great Gift – Kate Beaton’s “Hark! A Vagrant” Book Now Available


If you aren’t familiar with the swooningly brilliant work of Kate Beaton, get thee to a nunnery – or more accurately, buy this book (or at least read some of her hilarious, genius comics online at harkavagrant.com). The 28-year-old Canadian was a history major, but after a few years of doodles stacked up, her friends successfully pestered her into putting them online, and Hark! a Vagrant was born soon after. The comics are witty, original and creative, often with a historical or literary bent. To explain them is nearly impossible, but they’re fantastic. I want to recommend this book for anyone who loves comics or history and has a sense of humor.
