This April, It’s Time to Kill Shakespeare

Launching at WonderCon, April 2-4, 2010
San Diego, CA (February 19, 2010) – To celebrate the birth (and death) of the world’s most famous playwright, IDW Publishing is proud to launch a brand new comic series at WonderCon, Kill Shakespeare. Conceived and written by Canadian-based creators Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col, this twelve-issue series is a dark take on the Bard and his work, pitting his greatest heroes against his most menacing villains. The series will launch with a 32-page, ad-free first issue, and McCreery and Del Col will host an exclusive signing and panel at WonderCon, one of the country’s leading comics and pop culture conventions, including a discussion of literary mash-ups with leading authors and Shakespearean scholars. WonderCon will be held April 2 through the 4th at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
