The acclaimed Shakespearean mash-up returns as 5-issue mini-series.
Spurred by the demand of fans from the worlds of comics, theatre and academia, IDW Publishing is proud to announce the return of the acclaimed comic series Kill Shakespearewith the release of KILL SHAKESPEARE: THE TIDE OF BLOOD #1. The new five-issue run, with the original creative team of co-writers Conor McCreery andAnthony Del Col and artist Andy Belanger returning, debuts on February 20th, 2013 in comic book stores across the United States, Canada, and overseas.
Called "gripping, violent and dark fun," by The New York Times, the original 12-issue series was nominated for a Harvey Award for Best New Series and Joe Shuster Awards for Best Comic Writing. In the new adventure Shakespeare's greatest heroes (Hamlet, Juliet, Romeo, Othello, Miranda) embark on a journey to a forbidden island to save the world from the deranged "master of books", Prospero. The island is filled with cannibals, magic and madness - as well as ghosts from the pasts of many characters.
"It's a dream come true to continue to tell stories in the Kill Shakespeare universe," said McCreery. "We have such a vast and deep sandbox of characters to play with from Shakespeare and our fans constantly let us know which ones they want to see next. The entire fan response has been overwhelming."
"I had an awesome time working on the first two volumes of Kill Shakespeare," said series editor Tom Waltz. "Tickling both my literary and action-adventure fancies, Conor, Anthony, and Andy have most definitely given me one of the most satisfying and unique experiences I've had as an editor at IDW Publishing. And, just as the first go-round proved it's hard to kill Shakespeare, well, it's hard to kill a fantastic story concept, too, and I truly believe the best is yet to come from the Kill Shakespeare crew!"
