Anarchy in the U.K. – Kill Shakespeare style!

Hey all,

We’ve been busy beavering ourselves across the U.K. as the latest stop of our cross the world comic tour. So far we’ve seen London, Bristol and Oxford with Stratford-Upon-Avon, Manchester and Leeds still to come.

Anthony in front of one of London's great landmarks.

We haven’t had as much of a chance to see the country as we’d have liked. The shows and meetings have kept us pinned down (as well as a bit of jet lag those first couple of days) but we have managed to see Big Ben and the Parliment buildings and Anthony did a nice long walk one evening where he took in some of the sights of one of the great cities of the world.

Post podcast. Notice all the tea mugs? We're being converted on this trip!

We also were treated to a tour of Orbital Comics which is an amazing shop in the heart of London where we were interviewed by Chris for the store’s podcast. We then went out with one of the other manager’s Kyle where we sipped pints and chatted comics for hours — eventually deciding that Reid Fleming – the World’s Toughest Milk Man, American Flagg, and Power Man and Iron Fist are all well overdue to have cool movies.

Even though this guy was scoring a goal that decided the tighest premiership race in 23 years Bristolians were still engaging in their love of comics.

The Bristol Comic Expo was a smaller show but was enthusiastically attended by all involved, despite the fact that the biggest soccer match in arguably 22 years was going down at the same time as the Sunday show.

Getting their Irish up - Conor and Mark get into a tug o' war.

We were a little bummed when we found out that the copies of Kill Shakespeare Volume 1 were not going to make it to the show in Bristol but the fans shocked us by still clamboring to buy the series even though they could only get Volume 2.

We were also blown away by the number of amazing artists we met at the show. It seemed like everyone was landing a deal with Disney, or D.C., or image, or Random House. Clearly the U.K. is still churning out some of the best comic talent in the world.

Anthony got a LITTLE excited by the chance to walk in C.S. Lewis' footsteps!

After Bristol we’ve been fortunate enough to go to Oxford where we gave a talk at one of the local schools and then were treated to a great tour of the city by the amazing Katie Musgrave. Anthony also did his best master of disguise impression as he impersonated an Oxford student to sneak into C.S. Lewis’ old college so he could take in the atmosphere that inspired one of the all time great fantasy series – The Chronicles of Narnia.

Tonight we grab a few hours sleep and then we’re off to the den of Shakespeare itself — Stratford-Upon-Avon. We’ll be meeting with reps from the Royal Shakespeare Company as well as people from the Shakespeare Birthright Trust — both of them being excellent opportunities to win people over in helping us with our little plot of Bardicide (or they’ll kick us out of the Bard’s birthplace so fast our heads will spin… GRIN).

O.K. sure this is Ted Williams, but it COULD be a British WWI pilot...

Until our next update – keep flying’em in the crates they ship’em in (as we’ve been told British World War I pilots liked to cheers each other — apparently because the “crates” were more aerodynamic than the actual planes…).

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
