PAYING FOR IT and HARK! A VAGRANT get Austin Chronicle talking

“The Year in Books Thirty-one titles that got us talking this year” / The Austin Chronicle / Wayne Alan Brenner / January 6, 2012

Chester Brown's Paying for It (Drawn and Quarterly), the acclaimed cartoonist's unswerving account of his regular, ah, use of prostitutes over the past several years, doubles (or at least exhaustively tries to double) as an argument for the rights of sex workers.

Webcomics get a welcome incarnation in the offline world as Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant (Drawn and Quarterly) brings the cartoonist's sharp wit and delightful send-ups of historical characters (real and/or literary) into paper and ink.
