As some of you have seen, Kill Shakespeare is coming back to the page.
We’re working on our fifth book, “Juliet” which is going to take a step back from the main story to show you how Juliet started on the path towards becoming Prodigal leader. Set just a a few months after the end of Romeo and Juliet, we pick up our heroine as an angry young woman, who still feels guilt over Romeo’s death, and isn’t sure that she deserved to have survived. A horrific murder will give Juliet a cause, bloody vengeance, and pit her against one of Shakespeare’s nastiest villains, Cornwall from King Lear. Can Juliet get revenge? And will she lose herself in the process?
Unfortunately for us, the uber-talented Andy Belanger can’t join us this time out, so instead we have tapped the ALSO uber-talented Corin Howell! She’s best known for her work with BOOM! (Power Rangers), Viz Media (Bravest Warriors), Oni (The Mighty Zodiac) and IDW (Transformers), and now we’ve got her doing pencils and inks for our baby!
Vaneda Vireak, whose work featured in the back-up story for The Mask Of Night is on-board to colour the book and we could not be happier with their work.
Ah heck, why don’t we stop gushing and SHOW you?
Below are some pencils from the first chapter of the series – we’d love to hear your thoughts on this new comic-adventure!
