Last month I was cruising around Twitter, and I found a follower of a follower who draws comics inspired by history. "History comics?" I thought, "Awesome." Kate Beaton was a history major, museum employee, and now a comic artist. Her subjects bounce from vikings to Elizabethans to cowboys to chimney sweeps. The illustration style is loose with wonderfully expressive faces. Her humor often rests completely on a character's eyes.
Beaton runs a web comic and recently published a book, Never Learn Anything From History. If you're a history buff with a computer, book shelf, and a funny bone, then you simply must check out Hark a Vagrant.
If you are a Twitterer you can follow her daily work there too.
