Richard III comic - brand new from the Socks

Check this shiny little baby out. It's only a brand new comic strip adaptation of the Socks' Richard III routine, which has just gone off to the printers.

The comic version of Romeo and Juliet has been doing very nicely on the merchandise table at the Socks Do Shakespeare touring gigs, so it only seemed right to build on that success with a follow up. Richard III runs to 12 pages long, so I've backed it up with the 8-page Robin Hood (from the Socks Go To Hollywood paperback) and a page-long condensed version of James Bond. A guaranteed collectible from the get-go. Let's see how it does when it comes back from Ka-Blam.

And did I mention the DVD? I finally got round to turning the Edinburgh production of Socks Do Shakespeare into a full length DVD, backed up with a few extra videos from the pre-show medley. At ten quid a pop they've proved remarkably popular. What with those and the t-shirts, and a new batch of Socks Do Shakespeare badges I produced last week, we're rocking that merchandise stand this tour.
