Hark! A Vagrant is one of my favorite comics. It’s not the funniest (though it sometimes makes me bust a gut), but it is one of the cleverest. I love its attention to history, and I love the artwork.
Click on the comic to visit her website. It’s worth it!
Check out the entry below the comic, too. Man, Tesla just got screwed over, didn’t he? Edison AND Marconi?
Personally I don’t think he died. I think he invented a time machine, said “fuck this noise” and left behind a dead clone while he zoomed off to the 25th century to fly around in jetpacks fighting aliens.
