A Midsummer Night

A Midsummer Night's Dream (1 of 3)

Publication Date: May 11, 2011

Chapter: Random Literature

So, clearly I lied: it's more Shakespeare! But it's, y'know, different (and, in my opinion, superior) Shakespeare. The major difference is as such: in "Twelfth Night," everyone is a moron but the story is still being played oddly straight; in "Midsummer," everyone is a moron, but the story is being played as a complete farce. It results in a different tone entirely, and one I find easier to warm to. I wanna smack most of the idiots in "Twelfth Night." They just annoy me. The idiots in "Midsummer," however, are really likable and easier to laugh at (for the right reasons).

Anyway, I'm probably biased. This is my second favorite Shakespeare play. When a donation rolled in for not one, not two, but three "Midsummer" strips, I was pretty stoked. Which is to say, we'll be here for the rest of the week. Enjoy!
