Controversy!

It appears as though a Shakespearean scholar has not taken kindly to Kill Shakespeare and our concept… Kimberly Cox, a New York-based scholar (and coincidentally enough the girlfriend of artist/writer Frank Miller) has blasted our concept.  She has posted a long letter on BleedingCool.com, which you can check out by clicking on the link.

Random quotes:

“And now a BAD comic book?”

“I just threw up in my mouth.”

“Oh, they think they are so clever. They must, because otherwise, this comic book would not exist. IDW would never have even considered the proposal. But no one at IDW knew a thing about Shakespeare, that much is clear, because I doubt that they want to publish a giant stinking turd of a comic book on purpose.”

Also of note is that two other scholars are interviewed and their opinions differ from that of Ms. Cox.  They call the project “enjoyable”, “hard to fault” and “it’s a great idea.”

We’ve been asked quite a bit in the last few hours what we think of it and we’re okay with the criticism – in fact, we welcome a nice, healthy debate.  That’s one of the goals of our project – to get people talking about Shakespeare and interpretations of his works.  It just proves that he – who we believe is the greatest entertainer of all-time – is still relevant in today’s world.

    I wouldn’t worry about the Cox review since who cares about a third-rate Lynn Varley wannabe’s opinion.

    I personally disagree. And I know that I showed this comic to one of my professors who is trying to get a class on Shakespeare in popular culture off the ground, and she used it at a board meeting, so it can’t be as bad as she says.

    I agree slightly more with the other scholars, yeah there were some stops and starts, but it overall was a good story. And it’s hard to really judge an entire storyline by a single chapter.

    The use of “just threw up in my mouth” and “giant stink turd” immediately makes me discount their opinions as being those of 12 yo boys or middle-aged people trapped in their mom’s basement.

    You guys have made it though — you know once the trolls start commenting you’re doing something right!! ;)

    I am a Shakespearean actor, and I think this is fucking cool. I’ve been waiting for something like this for a while, just wish you had included young Hal with the good guys, and Pistol and Nym.
    Anyway, is there any place I can find these comics?
    My actor buddies would love to see them.
    You can reach me at alawfer@gmail.com

    Thanks

    Hi Anderson,

    You should be able to pick up copies of the first two issues at any comic book store in North America and the U.K. (www.comicshoplocator.com). You can also purchase them on iTunes as well as on the PSP.

    The criticism was a bit lame because, really, there was very little criticism in it. There’s just no need to write a Shakespeare tale in iambic pentameter; Cox’s comment is tantamount to saying Lovecraft tales must feature words like “gibbous and eldritch” or that critical theory must be written in Derrida-speak. You just don’t need to do it.

    Besides that, I don’t see Cox making actual points. I’d have liked to see exactly was irking her, but she never came out and said it.

    The irony is, she accuses Del Col and McCreery of bad writing.
