What if Shakespeare's greatest heroes—Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, Falstaff, and Puck—against his most threatening villains—Richard III, Lady Macbeth, and Iago—in a quest to track down and kill (or save!) a reclusive wizard named William Shakespeare?
That's the starting point for a comic book series, Kill Shakespeare, described by the New York Times as gripping, violent, dark fun.
Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery, the creators of Kill Shakespeare, share the inspiration behind the series, future plans, and even drop a spoiler or two about the epic illustrated series. They also take us behind the scenes and show the process of putting together an issue of the series.
Part of the Folger Lectures series. Recorded on February 15, 2011, in the Folger Elizabethan Theatre during the run of Folger Theatre's production of The Comedy of Errors. Anthony and Conor refer to the set's eleven doors—most of which they used in their entrance.
