Kate Beaton is so great. And not just because she’s from Nova Scotia, though that definitely helps. Her comics are epic and hilarious, and her bitter, angry Wonder Woman is pretty much the best thing ever.
There’s a new batch of Wonder Woman strips over at Hark! A Vagrant today, and they’re fantastic. This is my favourite one:
I’d reprint all of them, but that’s just rude. You need to go over to her site and read them, and then go buy her book, because it’s a hoot. Then write DC Comics a letter about how they need to pay Kate Beaton an inordinate amount of money to do backup strips in their books. Imagine Azzarello and Chiang’s Wonder Woman PLUS these strips… it would be the greatest comic book of all time!!
