Review: Step Aside, Pops

Step Aside, PopsKate Beaton, Step Aside, Pops

If you don’t already know Kate Beaton, creator of the delightful webcomic Hark! A Vagrant, you should check out her comics IMMEDIATELY! Not only are they hilarious, but many of them are based on literary works and historical events, so they are educational as well. This book collects some of Beaton’s greatest hits from the website, so some people may be disappointed at the lack of new material (there’s a little bit, but not much). Even so, I’m glad to have a hard copy collecting some of my favorites, from the brazen velocipedestrienne (!) on the front cover to the “straw feminists in the closet” to the classic Gorey and Nancy Drew covers. Definitely recommended for Beaton fans or for those who like their humor to be both smart and silly.
