Hark! A Vagrant Collected

In news that is sure to make my fellow podcaster Mladen (and many others) happy, Kate Beaton’s popular webcomic is being collected by publisher Drawn and Quarterly. Here’s what D+Q have to say:

Hark! A Vagrant will be in stores in Fall 2011 as a hardcover collection of new comics and comics that previously appeared on Beaton’s enormously popular website of the same name that receives 1.2 million monthly hits – 500,000 of them unique. Hark! A Vagranttakes readers on a romp through history and literature with dignity for few and cookies for all, with comic strips about famous authors, their characters, political and historical figures, all drawn in Kate Beaton’s pared-down, excitable style. Whether she’s writing about Nikola Tesla, Napoleon, or Nancy Drew, Beaton brings a refined sense of the absurd to every situation. Beaton’s comics have appeared in Harpers, the National Post, and theNew Yorker, her caricatures of historical and literary figures, filtered through a contemporary lens, display a sharp, quick wit that knows no bounds.
