Review
One of the new generation of Web-comics, Wondermark recontextualizes nineteenth-century drawings cadged from rare-book archives and Malki!'s personal collection in an absurdist strip reminiscent of Monty Python and resembling fellow Internet-comic White Ninja. Dark Horse's hardbound presentation serves Wondermark well. The deep reds and golds and the colossal moustache that cover the volume evoke its late-Victorian aesthetic with agreeable ponderousness. Online fans will be pleased that the collection includes some material created for this edition and never published online, including the eight-page "Treachery!" Besides the regular three- to four-panel strips, Malki! includes half-page narratives beneath several color strips—background about an elephant actor, faux ads for products featured in the comic, a statement from the Marine Invertebrate Anti-Defamation League, and the like. The collection has plenty of rereading value, for various hidden gags pepper the pages (how hidden? Some need to be held up to a light to decipher). Hardly just for Internet fans, Beards should grab all readers who like their comics more than a bit off-kilter. -- Orellana, Carlos (Reviewed 10-01-2008) (Booklist, vol 105, number 3, p33)
