She pulls heavily from her background in history and anthropology to write absurdly hilarious comics about some not so funny topics: Canadian history, US Founding Fathers, the French Revolution, and more. She showcases women in history and other figures that are usually skimmed over in textbooks. Her own oddball characters are sprinkled throughout the text as well. Expect to find wizards, Henry VIII, Robinson Crusoe, Nancy Drew, and mobsters all the in the same book. Check this book out for a laugh!
