It hath been many moons since I last posted. Verily I am back, full in force and bearing strange humor!
Incidentally, it’s well past time for another Webcomic of the week! And if you’re wondering why I was talking like that, it’s merely in celebration of this week’s webcomic flavor, Hark! A Vagrant. For the record, I’m going to look up those letters James Joyce wrote to what’s-her-name.
Hark! A Vagrant is a delightful comic by Nova Scotia native Kate Beaton (as in born there, not native American…though that could also be the case, even with that surname). Kate is a historian, with a history degree and a history job (it’s at a museum), and shares as much on her “about” page, which is both amusing and full of great advice for aspiring artists. Check it out!
Her webcomic is a smattering of deadpan humor and satire on a wide array of topics, but mostly those of historical and literary figures. If you are a living, breathing person there’s probably something (if not a shitload of things) for you in this amazing collection. Here are a couple pages from Hark! that I found particularly hilarious. They also happen to be two very recent additions to the comic. Enjoy!
Sexy Science. Why not?
In that same vein (sort of), and for a bonus: Sexy Batman. Because sexy Batman.
