Dinosaur Comics has got a great idea for a new series of books --
Shakespeare Prequels! I love it.
"It'll be Hamlet, only he's happy and well-adjusted, walking around saying 'I certainly hope my father doesn't get murdered!' and then Ophelia says 'Thats right, baby! I, incidentally, plan to remain sane." and then there's IRONY! Shakespeare fans love irony!
Don't we just, though? :)
