Kate Beaton is perhaps the greatest cartoonist of her generation, and one of the best living today.
My mother gave the family a copy of this comic a while ago, and so I’ve restored it to where it was. I wrote it in a moment of grief and took it down almost as soon as it went up, it is a comic that is very much in the moment of something. My greatest affection and respect to the Beatons, they are good people, the very best. A tribute would be the word I’d like to use for them and their son, here.
