HARK! A VAGRANT, BY KATE BEATON
Kate Beaton rules the online and print comic worlds. Hark! A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops, her two published collections of her online comic, reinterpret history, classic literature, and terrible old cartoons through a modern lens. Beaton does tons of research to make her comics as accurate as possible, using sly humor, ridiculous butt jokes, and a little whimsy to teach her history lessons: Consider the perfectly skeptical expression on Ida B. Wells's face when told that white suffragettes would prefer she didn't participate in their suffrage march, but, "It's naawt a race thing."
