Kate Beaton rose to moderate internet fame after her historical Web Comics became subject to Memetic Mutation. Most of these were responses to challenges, which means they cover a diverse array of historical figures. Other comics deal with Canadian history in particular, nonsense subjects (usually drawn in a much simpler, MS Paint style than the other comics), and autobiographical subjects, including conversations with her younger self.
Kate Beaton's comics are updated on her website, Hark a Vagrant and her LiveJournal. As with most webcomic authors, it is traditional to refer to Kate Beaton by her full name. Characters in her comics usually refer to her as "Katie" or "Beaton".
