Y 2009 It is 68 pages of the ones she likes the best It should be noted that younger self comics aren't there but perhaps they will have a home all their own someda. Aw yiss What's not to love about Beaton's work The perfect blend of smart and silly Her seemingly random humor is rooted in satirical yet affectionate and dead on depictions of famous and Canadian historical figures And her charming art style is the perfect extension of those comedic sensibilities Her drawings are carefree and subtle at the same time The likenesses are uncanny and the vivid facial expressions really bring these historical figures to life Yet the overall effect is one of extemporaneous ease She seems to be playing fast and loose with history but with the wit skill and assurance of someone who really knows their stuffIt's also a well designed book and I like the thick paper Although I think that was just used to disguise the fact that the book is so short This volume while freuently hilarious collects some of Beaton's earliest work and thankfully she just kept getting better For newcomers I'd suggest starting with Hark A Vagrant and then picking up this one while climbing the walls waiting for Step Aside Pops A Hark A Vagrant Collection to come out

Kate Beaton writes lovely little comics Her sense of humor is deliciously wicked right up my alley However history is one of my weak suits so I didn't fully understand a majority of the jokes in this tome Those I did understand were hilarious especially the ones relating to Catholicism and religion in general There are a few strips in particular I want to look up and send to friends and family Many thanks to Lyndsey for letting me borrow the book I'm ready to return it now and working on the others this week
