Her drawing ability is off the charts – she has an otherworldly facility with line and tone AND she is consistently hilarious AND she shreds and eviscerates famous novels with the panache of a true literati – in short, she deserves every bit of her success and popularity and I wish her the best! Way to go, Kate!

I always feel like I learned something after seeing her work, not about cartooning, but about history, the world, literature, etc.
