Kill Shakespeare
An epic adventure that will change the way you look at Shakespeare forever.
In this dark tale, the Bard’s most famous heroes embark upon a journey to discover a long-lost soul. Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, Falstaff, Romeo and Puck search for a reclusive wizard who may have the ability to assist them in their battle against the evil forces led by the villains Richard III, Lady Macbeth and Iago. That reclusive wizard? William Shakespeare.
A combination of “Fables”, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and “Lord of the Rings”, Kill Shakespeare offers a remixed re-envisioning of the greatest characters of all-time, featuring action, romance, comedy, lust, drama and bloody violence. It is an adventure of Shakespearean proportions.

    I’m a big Shakespeare fan, and I really liked this book. At times cluttered and slow, but I enjoyed it anyway. Of course, just recently took two Shakespeare courses (one as an English class and one as an acting class. English Class Shakespeare=boring, Acting Class Shakespeare was the first time I really saw what a genius he was and started to love his works.)

    On the topics of Shakespeare films, I’d like to recommend Hamlet 2 (with Steve Coogan, hilarious.) and if you can find it, there was a BBC version of a RSC stage production of Hamlet a year or two ago, starring Patrick Stewart as Hamlet Sr./Polonius and David freakin’ Tennant as Hamlet. It’s as amazing as it sounds.

    The comicbook I have payed the most for is (Im ashamed to say) Darkness 1. In US dollars I gave about 20$ for it.
    The most valuable comic i have is most likely some of the old Deadpool stuf.
