Hark! A Vagrant!

Hark! A Vagrant   I choose this for my funny book for the PopSugar Reading challenge.  It is a collection of short comic strips - essentially a graphic novel of short stories.  These all relate to some historical character - like the Bronte sisters or the Founding Fathers.  Important figures from Pop Culture ( like Poe, the X-men,  Watson and Holmes, Wonder Woman and more ) also appear.  The stories are very tongue in check, with some being funnier than others.   I loved all the Bronte and Wonder Woman references.  It was a quick and easy read and I enjoyed it.  It's doubtful that I would have read this without the challenge.

If you really are looking for something funny,  the funniest thing I have EVER read is.....
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened This is, bar none, the FUNNIEST book I have ever read. I laughed out loud all the way through reading it.  One story was funnier than the next and there was so much I could relate to.  So, if you are really looking for something for this category and haven't read this one, I highly, highly recommend it!
