My concluding “Kill Shakespeare” interview segment is suddenly existential. During San Diego Comic-Con 2010, I chatted with “Kill Shakespeare” artist/illustrator Andy Belanger and creators Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery. Anthony and Conor put the 12-part comics series in broader context: Quest for the Almighty. “Does he even exist?” Anthony asks of Shakespeare. “There are some people who steadfastly believe that he is the creator.” Other characters in the story believe there is no creator—ah artist. Sounds familiar, eh?
Quick backstory: I had tremendous troubles uploading Acts II, III and IV to YouTube. I exported Act I using iMovie `09. Act II took five attempts, with iMovie indicating successful upload but there was no video on YouTube (upload five succeeded). I exported Acts III and IV in 720p and used YouTube’s uploader. Success it seemed, only to later find the videos posted at 480p. Argh.
