This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Kill Shakespeare, by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery, and Andy Belanger. The series follows Hamlet, of the Shakespeare play, who—having left Denmark and sailed for England as he should—is beset by pirates. After escaping a bloody battle on a plank of wood Hamlet awakens not in England, but in a land populated by Shakespearian characters, in the castle of Richard III.
He is soon embroiled in a great war between various factions, all seeking The Bard himself, for their own purposes.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Black Science, The Thessaliad, Friends with Boys, and Five Ghosts for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Five Ghosts.
Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kit DeForge, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.
