Fans of the web comic Wondermark will be able to get their hands on a physical version of the strip when Dark Horse releases a hardbound edition entitled Beards of our Fathers in June 2008.


Ignatz-nominated creator David Malki crafts his unique comic strips by combining public-domain Victorian-era engravings with clever original dialogue to illustrate an often-poignant social commentary. Against the pinned-down and buttoned-up backdrop of a bygone era, Malki’s sarcastic yet sincere sense of humor adds layers of depth and lucidity to his creation, pitting classic representations against contemporary comedy.

“Each comic strip is its own little world, telling its own little story,” Malki explained in a prepared statement. “They resemble the world we know, but twisted a half-turn, or more. My only overall goal is to present a narrative of contemporary life that will confound future archaeologists.”

Wondermark: Beards of our Fathers will sell for $14.95.
