Hark! A Vagrant

Kate Beaton

October 2011

HARK! A VAGRANT takes readers on a romp through history and literature -- with dignity for few and cookies for all -- with comic strips about famous authors, their characters, and political and historical figures, all drawn in Beaton's pared-down, excitable style. This collection features favourite stories as well as new, previously unpublished content. Whether she's writing about Nikola Tesla, Napoleon, or Nancy Drew, Beaton brings a refined sense of the absurd to every situation.

In just four years, Kate Beaton has taken the comics world by storm with her non sequiturs, cheeky comebacks and irreverent punch lines. With 1.2 million monthly hits on her site - 500,000 of them unique-- and comics appearing in Harpers Magazine, the National Post and The New Yorker, her caricatures of historical and fictional figures filtered through a contemporary lens display a sharp, quick wit that knows no bounds.

8 x 8 1/2 inches, 160 pages, Black-and-white illustrations throughout, Hardcover
