Have you ever read Hark a Vagrant?
A hilarious, historically informed Canadian named Kate Beaton has made my weeks bearable with her “inside joke” feeling comics.
There are many about the Great Gatsby, Tesla the Celibate Scientist, Ben Franklin, Elizabeth I, Henry VIII, Marie Antoinette, Marquis de Pompadour, Queen Victoria, and many many more. Among my favorites are hers of Napoleon, his horrible love life, and Josephine, his wife who always seems to be shagging anybody but him, even as he’s heading off to war.
They’re intelligent and require you to actually know what’s going on for you to find them funny. They aren’t for the stupid.
