Ideas for the Hard-to-buy-for Historian #9

Mark Reynolds, writer, Beaver magazine contributor and current resident of Rheims, France, has a digital suggestion:
This is quite possibly too silly, but Kate Beaton's web-comics are a delight. I'm a huge fan. Most of her comics have a history spin, and given that she's originally from Cape Breton, a Canadian spin as well. Her website is www.katebeaton.com and there are links to her history comics on top. She also has a livejournal blog, where she will occasionally write about history topics (she recently reviewed Passchendaele, for instance).

She sells t-shirts and such from her web site as well, which could make a good gift for history enthusiasts with an absurdist sense of humour.
