Because Comics: A Compilation Of The Best Grammar And Literature Comics

Because I love comics and I love literature, here’s a little of both.

Matthew Inman (aka The Oatmeal) now has several bestselling books, but his grammar comics are still my favorites.

Need to know when to use who and when to use whom?
Confused on the differences between types of irony?
Don’t know when to use an apostrophe?
The semicolon is the most awesome punctuation and here is why.
Common misspellings and how to fix them.
Literally the best comic about how to use literally.
And what the hell is i.e.?

XKCD is known for his math/science/coding jokes and other thins that go way over my head, but Randall Monroe has some great literary gems.
More literally.
Badass Emily Dickinson
Books and made up words
Daft Poe

Grant Snider’s Incidental Comics are brilliant and imaginative. These are a few of my favorites on books, writing,  and literature.
Literary Devices
Stray Books
Summer Reading
Story Structures
Consolation Prizes
Brainstorm
Book Banning
Fahrenheit 351
Department of Poetry
Writing Necessities

But of course, few surpass the lovely Kate Beaton in history and literature. While I suggest them all, these are my favorites.
Jane Austen
The Mr. Darcy Phenomenon
The headless horseman likes your shoes
Oh Zelda
The Brontes
Holmes and Watson
Watson and Holmes
Airships Galore
The Great Gatsby
The Scottish Comic

Little Hermione is a lot of adorable
Julius Caesar

Also, the truth behind Don Quixote according to Zach Weiner.

And of course, Allie Brosh’s infamous Alot.

Plus these excellent literary cartoons from Tom Gauld, published by The Guardian.
