Friday Featured Comic: The Shelleys (and Byron, of course)

I'm officially in love with Kate Beaton over at Hark! A Vagrant.

[Sigh.]
I wish I could draw so I could make snarky little comics about famous dead writers.

In the intro to writing book that I use for my class, there is section in there about the genesis of "Frankenstien." It mentions that the Shelleys, Byron, and Byrons 'doctor' friend. I always tell the class that's a really polite way of saying "Byron's drug dealer."

Ha! And the doctor 'friend' went on to write the book "The Vampyre," which he based almost entirely on the personality of Byron (whom he didn't seem to like very much).
