I'm a grad student, an avid reader, a huge nerd, fervent roleplayer, wife, cat lover, tea snob, and obsessive keeper of lists.
Hark! A Vagrant - Kate Beaton The second collection of webcomics (of three) that I've had around for the last little while. This one, for some reason, I've never really followed online. It doesn't make a lot of sense, given that I completely enjoy her comics, and she's mostly writing about history and literature, and saying hilarious things about both.

Some brief thoughts: the bits on what kind of men Charlotte and Emily Bronte prefer to Anne's response are hilarious.

When I have an office door of my own, I want a copy of the Canadian History one for it.

Jules Verne writing fanmail to Edgar Allan Poe and kicking his feet is the most hilarious thing ever.

I also love the Shakespeare ones, but the one where Shakespeare assures James the First that of course the kings just kept getting handsomer and handsomer until they reached the pinnacle of James, while rolling his eyes kills me.

So, what I'm saying, I guess is, read them! They are awesome!
