An Excellent Comic plus History to boot,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hark! A Vagrant (Hardcover)
Hark! A Vagrant is by far one of my favorite webcomic series. It is engrossing and very entertaining, the characters always seem to reflect who you'd expect them to be except they don't take themselves too seriously. Another plus is you don't even need to know the historical figures, in fact I enjoy it more when I don't! Much like XKCD, a strip from Hark! A Vagrant frequently sends me to wikipedia to read the full bio of historical figures. I feel I've learned more about history from this webcomic than my 7+ years of history classes in school.
I sincerely hope many people buy Kate Beaton's book in support of her comic.
