If you don’t read Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant, today is a good day to start.
I’m showing her header, but it’s a trick: Today’s strip isn’t by Kate.
Leland and I tried to capture the spirit of her feature, at least, and I hope we did…but speaking for myself, I had a real case of brain freeze when invited to write a script. “How do you… I mean, how can anyone… What I’m trying to say is I can’t…!” In short, I panicked until realizing that mortals can not write like her. Then I was free to write something like me, and hope it would be kinda sorta Hark!-esque. Leland’s art sells it.
