Kill Shakespeare!

  • Share on Tumblr

It was my pleasure to meet Anthony Del Col and Connor McCreery when they were over from Canada. They are the authors of Kill Shakespeare a graphic novel series which, so far, has two volumes.

These are not the kind of books that I would ordinarily read, but the first volume was warmly recommended to me by Shakespeare scholar Emma Smith (Hertford College, Oxford), so it’s definitely now on the mounting pile of things to read. Perhaps there’s a train journey looming…

On the audio-post below Anthony and Connor talk to me about what inspired them to produce this brave and bold adaptation based on the imaginary afterlives of Shakespeare’s characters.
