Anthony talks libraries (video)

At the American Library Association Annual Conference a few weeks ago in Chicago I sat down with Jennifer “Bill” Billingsley from the Glenwood-Lynwood Public Library to talk about Kill Shakespeare, my thoughts on libraries, our stage show, growing up at libraries in northern Canada, and a range of other things. The video was shot on […]

Librarians, here we come!

One of the more unique – and enjoyable – conferences I attended last year was the American Library Association Annual Conference (held in Anaheim last June).  It’s a huge smorgasbord of some of the most influential readers and people in the publishing industry – the librarians! I’m excited to attend this year’s Annual Conference again, […]

Anthony Interviewed at ALA

Here is an interview that I did with the fun Kat Kan for the American Library Association while in Anaheim this past weekend… I talk about Kill Shakespeare, the genesis of the project, and thoughts on libraries (and having KS in libraries)… (I hope that sound of the baby crying/laughing in the background isn’t too […]

Anthony at ALA 2012

I arrived yesterday in Los Angeles after a five-hour delay.  I boarded my first plane but before it could take off the pilot discovered a small malfunction and we had to switch to another plane.  The same thing happened with the second plane.  It wasn’t until the third one that we were finally able to […]

The Berenstain Bears and Librarians

The co-creator of The Berenstain Bears, Jan Berenstain, passed away late last week.  It’s been years since I have read – or even thought of – those collections of books but seeing her obituary brought back a flood of memories, not only of the books but an influential librarian in my life. Growing up in […]

CBC’s The National Profile on YouTube

For those that missed our profile last month, the CBC has released our footage on YouTube and it’s imbedded here…

A story in three panels!

This past Tuesday Conor and I were fortunate to be able to visit the Pickering Public Library to discuss Kill Shakespeare, the Bard and the comics-making process.  We’ve done a few of these presentations now and we’re really enjoying them. One thing we do every time is a breakout session in which the audience (normally […]

2010 Summer Reading List

Earlier today the site Good Comics for Kids released a 2010 Summer Reading List.  And on it, in the Teen category, is Kill Shakespeare!  I guess that Kate Dacey (who reviewed our first two issues last month) enjoyed it enough to recommend it for inclusion on a list that includes the final Scott Pilgrim book […]
