For people who think webcomics are automatically low quality, here's something to prove them wrong.
(If Girl Genius and Gunnerkrigg Court haven't convinced them of that yet, anyway.)

Hark! A Vagrant doesn't have a story; it's a collection of strips that deal mainly with history and literature in an incredibly humorous way. Fans and curious parties can, of course, read it online at harkavagrant.com.

One of the things I loved most about the print collection is how Kate Beaton was able to leave in her comments on strips--sometimes it was fun backstory, and often it was a bit of useful information on the historical bits--especially useful because some of the historical stuff deals with Canadian history, which I am not familiar with in the least.

I got this from the library, but it's on my short list of Things To Buy When I Have Money. It would also make a good gift for people who like humor and history, even if they're not typical comic fans.
