In case you did not know (and I did try really hard to make the whole world know and subsequently get annoyed with me) that I was at New York ComicCon last week. It was awesome. Truly awesome. While there I was able to meet a bunch of guys who created a comic series (now available in graphic novel form) called Kill Shakespeare. A fantastic concept that pitches Shakespeare’s heroic characters – Hamlet, Rome and Juliet, Othello and a brilliant Falstaff, into a rebellion against the evil Richard III, Iago and Lady Macbeth. And where is Shakespeare? Can our heroes find him in time?
The artwork is excellent and the story is well written, uses Shakespearian English in an accessible way and the guys throw in lots of neat Shakespeare fanboy references. I implore you to check out their stuff. Kudos to Anthony, Conor and Tony B – it was a pleasure to meet you.
