  1. Enjoying this series very much!

    Thought of another comic adaptation of Hamlet you might want to check out: Have you read Kyle Baker’s “The Cowboy Wally Show”? There’s a section in the book where Cowboy Wally and his associates make a Hamlet movie despite several limitations…not the least of which is that they’re all in jail at the time. Hardly a faithful adaptation, but it could be fun to bring it into the discussion.
