"I was told I make intelligent comics, and then I made a comic about a horse that pooped."
Kate Beaton

Hark! A Vagrant is a largely history-based Web Comic by Kate Beaton best known for its historical comics, which are one-shots of varying length focusing on historical events or figures. There are occasionally other kinds of comics, including comics in which Beaton visits her younger self, a few comics about a pony called "Fat Pony", and a story about a sailor who meets a mermaid. There is little continuity and each comic is a standalone strip. Also, rather than use Alt Text, Beaton usually accompanies each comic with a short paragraph.

Tropes used in Hark! A Vagrant include:

  "Sometimes? I pretend to be Neptune."

 "OK so, try to find a place here that I haven't put my penis in. It's not easy."

 Banquo: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Macbeth: (thinking) Kill everyone.

Banquo: Ha ha! Our kids are totally gonna hook up!

Macbeth: What?

"Haha hey everyone, welcome to Hell. I'm your demon, Baal" [gesturing to his abs] "I know you're thinking, eternity with this guy? What is this, Heaven? Haha but no, there's no mistake."

 Chopin: Unrelated, we are both on the cover of "Enormous Ego" this week.

Liszt: Only this week?

 Kate Beaton: I think if Samuel L. Jackson was a woman, Chinese, and alive during the Tang Dynasty, he would be this woman right here.

 Witch: Banquo's sons will be kings, yes

Each one will get handsomer and handsomer until King James I

 Strong Female Character (while punching a Housewife in the face): Your reign of terror is over you cookie baking BITCH!

 Protagonist: Doctor, there's a woman in the wallpaper.

Doctor: That woman has a feminist agenda. Tell her to get in the wallpaper that's in the kitchen.

 Lady Macbeth: I wish I was a man. I'd kill Duncan in a second. Then I'd get a BONER.

Macbeth: Dang, that's manly.
