Drawn & Quarterly has secured the North American rights to publish a new book collection of Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant.
Chris Oliveros, Editor-in-Chief and Acquiring Editor and Publisher at D+Q:
“To say that the meteoric rise of Kate Beaton’s popularity is nothing short of a modern-day cartooning tour-de-force is not hyperbole,” said Oliveros. “Her comics revolve around characters and situations drawn from history and classic fiction. And yet, they are utterly contemporary. With their incisive humor and intelligence, they have captured the attention of a world wide audience. We are extremely honored to publish Hark! A Vagrant in book format.”
Book is due out in the fall this year.

Yaaay, go team webcomics! (it helps that ‘Hark! A Vagrant’ is an excellent comic)
Kate Beaton is one of the most talented cartoonists ever. Brilliant, witty, wonderful drawing style. This is going to be a must-have book!
