Hark! A Vagrant is an uproarious romp through history and literature seen through the sharp, contemporary lens of New Yorker cartoonist and comics sensation Kate Beaton. No era or tome emerges unscathed as Beaton rightly skewers the Western world's revolutionaries, leaders, sycophants, and suffragists while equally honing her wit on the hapless heroes, heroines, and villains of the best-loved fiction.
Oh my! History, literature, and jokes are wrapped into one? I am so into this volume of comics! Multiple times I found myself chucking out loud, much to the dismay of my husband. The panels about the suffragettes had me laughing out loud. I read this book cover to cover in about a day. It was great. I was sucked into every frame. Such a great collection of comics.
