Kate Beaton on Sound of Young America!

Kate Beaton, Author of Hark! A Vagrant: Interview on The Sound Of Young America

Bullseye    |    MaxFun Intern    |    October 31, 2011

Kate Beaton joins us on The Sound Of Young America to talk about her webcomic, Hark! a Vagrant. Her comic mines everything from Nancy Drew to obscure Canadian explorers for inspiration. Political figures and literary characters are re-imagined and skewered as petulant children, jaded superheroes and Victorian dude-watchers, accented by a very expressive drawing style.

We talk about building an audience online, Kate's own favorite comics and what gives her inspiration.

Her comics have recently been collected into a book, also called Hark! A Vagrant.
