    Seriously, everyone — if you don’t already read “Hark, A Vagrant” you should start now. It’s sort of like XKCD for history and literature. Kate Beaton makes me cry laughing on a regular basis.

    Some of my all-time favorites include:
    Canadian Stereotype Comics (Kate Beaton is Canadian)
    Queen Bess at Tilbury
    Great Gatsbys

    Oh, just go read the whole website. Your life will be better with “Hark, a Vagrant” in it.

      Yup.  You’ll lose a day or so clicking through all the panels, but it will have been worth it.

      Complete surrender is the only way; just start at the beginning. You have no idea how funny the Bronte sisters, Chopin and Liszt, Nancy Drew, Andrew Jackson, and a strangely overweight Shetland pony can be.

      And, buy the book! It’s very satisfying to own and display for others.
