Kate Beaton
Guy Lochhead, 06/09/10
Canadian webcomic artist who started drawing comics for the college newspaper when she was in her third and fourth years of studying History and Anthropology at Mount Allison University. The comics find humour in past events, and often play on the subjectivity of history. She publishes them twice a week. Beaton uses her knowledge of history, her drawing abilities, and the mass-communicative power of the internet to educate and entertain. Even if I don’t know who or what she’s writing about, the comic will lead me to find about the subject. Perfect! I will include ‘Never Learn Anything From History’, the first collection of her work.
