Ida B. Wells, the Black Prince, and Benito Juárez burst off the pages of Step Aside, Pops: A Hark! A Vagrant Collection, armed with modern-sounding quips and amusingly on-point repartee. Kate Beaton's second D+Q book brings her hysterically funny gaze to bear on these and even more historical, literary, and contemporary figures. Irreverently funny and carefully researched, no target is safe from Beaton's incisive wit in these satirical strips.

Beaton began her infectiously popular web comic, Hark! A Vagrant, in 2007 and it quickly attracted the adoration of hundreds of thousands of fans. It was an unequivocal hit with critics and fans alike, topping best-of-the-year lists from E!, Amazon, Time, and more. Now Beaton returns with a refined pen, ready to make jokes at the expense of hunks, army generals, scientists, and Canadians in equal measure.

Review of 'Step Aside, Pops' on 'Goodreads'

No rating

Beaton lager tegneserier om hva enn som interesserer henne, og det er gjerne litteratur fra 1800-tallet, historiske figurer, europeisk middelalder eller gamle postkort. Når figurene hun tar utgangspunkt i er kjent, er det en fornøyelse å se dem gjengitt av henne. Men den som gjør at jeg særlig liker "Hark! A Vagrant" er at selv når historiene/karakterene er ukjente, gir hun dem personligheter som gjør det morsomt å lese likevel. Anbefales, både i bokform og på nett.
