So! Happy 300th update! It doesn't really mean anything because not all the things in the archives are even comics. But anyway! Prints of this comic won't be sold with the bonus sketchies at the end.

Comic updates will continue to be at a slower pace while I work on my book. Me and my schedule woes, where are the violins? For lame occasions? It's not in the yellow pages.

I have a strange cast of reoccurring characters, and Good Queen Bess is one of them. Heck, in one of the earliest ones, she's already at Tilbury! I remember in the course of my being raised Catholic and Scottish and all (somewhere between the tartans and the endless mass, I recall) there was a distinct notion that Mary Queen of Scots rules and Elizabeth drools but who were we kidding? Elizabeth was terrifying and amazing and also especially terrifying (which is great). Anyway who can stay mad at a face like that?

A face caked with lead paint featuring an impossibly high hairline and black teeth. Why I feel a sonnet comin' on!


And now here are some feral looking ladies I drew. I like them! They were lawyers, in my head. I hope I find a comic for them.


If merchandise isn't for you but you would like to support Hark! A Vagrant, you can do that here. Thanks for reading!
