I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Book Description

A follow-up to Hark! A Vagrant, which spent five months on the New York Times bestseller list

“From Julius Caesar to The Secret Garden and from the late Romantics to Kokoro, Beaton knocks it out of the park, having a go at anything and everything with her razor-sharp wit.”-Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Ida B. Wells, the Black Prince, and Benito Juárez burst off the pages of Step Aside, Pops: A Hark! A Vagrant Collection, armed with modern-sounding quips and amusingly on-point repartee. Kate Beaton’s second D+Q book brings her hysterically funny gaze to bear on these and even more historical, literary, and contemporary figures. Irreverently funny and carefully researched, no target is safe from Beaton’s incisive wit in these satirical strips.
Beaton began her infectiously popular web comic, Hark! A Vagrant, in 2007 and it quickly attracted the adoration of hundreds of thousands of fans. It was an unequivocal hit with critics and fans alike, topping best-of-the-year lists from E!, Amazon, Time, and more. Now Beaton returns with a refined pen, ready to make jokes at the expense of hunks, army generals, scientists, and Canadians in equal measure. With a few carefully placed lines, she captures the over-the-top evil of the straw feminists in the closet, the disgruntled dismay of Heathcliff, and Wonder Woman’s all-conquering ennui. Step Aside, Pops is sure to be the comedic hit of the year: sharp, insightful, and very funny.

Pros
This is a brilliant body of work that brings out the humorous side of the past and present time periods.
Cons
Unfortunately a lot of the material in this book is contained in Kate Beaton’s webcomic series so ardent fans may already be familiar with the content.
Summary
This is the much acclaimed sequel to Hark! A Vagrant which was a highly ranked bestseller. Canadian author Kate Beaton showcases one of her smartest and funniest cartoon collection to date. Most of the content is related to history and classic literature and contains the same razor sharp humor and wit that you would expect from Beaton’s popular webcomic strips. Beaton manages to effortlessly blend history, classic literature and pop-culture; bringing characters to life with her unrelenting satirical interpretations. If you are a fan of comedic literature then this is a must-read.
