    woah! almost a week without a mention of kate beaten. it’s almost like there are other web comics to talk about.

  2. Kate Beaton is one of a small handful of webcomic makers who produce a decent comic. She should be talked about.

  3. Yeah, there’s a lot of really amazing work being in webcomics now. A LOT. Kate Beaton is very funny, but she isn’t hurting for press.

  4. Kate Beaton is wonderful, and these are funny strips, but I sort of agree. I bet there are comics bloggers in her bathroom right now, waiting to applaud her next poop.

  5. This was quite hilarious actually; thanks for linking it.

    I’m sometimes also a bit mystified by the popularity of this strip, but this installment linked above is a definite exception. Sharp, funny, and not obscure at all.

  6. Ian Boothby says:

    Kate Beaton is the funniest cartoonist around.

  7. Well, I guess this is amusing. But I’ve seen her do better work than this. The drawings are kind of weak this time around.

  8. I agree as well. I’m a fan of Kate’s work too (looking forward to the upcoming book) but there are many other talented creators producing web comics on the net and at times (IMO) The Beat seems to be Kate’s personal press agent.

  9. The Beat says:

    Hey Kate happened to produce a webcomic that was very germane to OTHER issues recently discussed here — such as female superheroes, creators and so on. So EXCUUUUUUUUUUUUSE ME!

    That said I would love to broaden my webcomics horizons so post away in this special thread JUST FOR YOU:

    It’s funny. I think if she had Frank Cho draw it, it would work better.

    I set up a tumblr where people can post their #StrongFemales fan art if they feel like it.
