Frederick the Great (webcomic)

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Frederick the Great: A Most Lamentable Comedy Breaching Time and Space is a webcomic about the 18th Century Prussian monarch Frederick the Great. Except he's a time traveler with the personality of a giggling schoolgirl. And he travels with Isaac Newton, Peter the Great, and Abraham Lincoln, fighting just about everybody.

As you can tell, this is not exactly a sane comic. Much of the humour comes from juxtaposing various historical figures into increasingly bizarre situations, such as making Isaac Newton a literal math wizard, making Salvador Dali into a supervillain attempting to destroy all rationality, Emily Dickinson as a Goth ninja, and so on. There's a lot of very obscure jokes, but the 'Gentlemen Scholars' (as the comic's creators, one Count Dolby von Luckner and one Geoff like to call themselves) post lots of handy historical background in The Rant.

Highly recommended for history buffs and fans of absurd humour.
