What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

i'll just leave this here

Shakespearean Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Illustrated by Some of Our Favorite Ladies (And Others)


What, do you need some kind of explanation? Ryan North (who you might know from Dinosaur Comics) has just started up a Kickstarter for To Be or Not To Be, a choose-your-own-adventure version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet where you can play as Hamlet, Old Hamlet, or Ophelia. It’s already funded, with all profits from the sale of the published books going to charity.

But we thought you’d like to know about it anyway, so you can get in on those sweet rewards, because of the talent behind the book’s illustrations. You see, the more it gets funded, the more illustrations it will have, and the more art we’ll get to see by ladies like Carly Mondardo, Danielle Corsetto, Emily Partridge, Jess Fink, Kate Beaton, Meredith Gran, and Noelle Stevenson. Also come on, you can play as Ophelia.

(via everywhere.)

    No problem! I’m beyond excited for this! With every funding goal unlocking it just keeps getting better and better.

    May jaw might have dropped at some of the names of those comic artists.
