WEBCOMIC REVIEW: LINCOLN'S MUSTACHE BY KELLAN MORGAN

When I am not running Champion City Comics, I am a historian and an adjunct instructor of history. It was sometime last year when I discovered the historical but humorous webcomic from Kellan Morgan titled Lincoln's Mustache. Morgan describes his webcomic as "...the culmination of a love of history plus a love of facial hair, explosions, and horrendous historical events turned humorous. Also, vague historical references that no one gets because I’m just a bad comic writer person who doesn’t care about you, the reader. Deal with it."

First, let me say that I do not understand the current pop culture mustache craze. I'm Generation X and back in the day, having a mustache meant you were one or all of the following: 1. A Baby Boomer who could not come to grips with the fact that the 1970s had ended 2. A frequent visitor to Fire Island or 3. A cop. But I digress.  

Lincoln's Mustache is a fantastic blend of obscure historical facts and a Monty Python type of humor which is witty but twisted. Updated every Sunday, this webcomic features some great commentary from Morgan about various historical figures and/or events. I've really enjoyed this webcomic and it is one of the few humor based webcomics that makes me laugh. Although Morgan credits himself as a bad comic writer, I believe his work is absolutely wonderful.
