To Be or Not To Be: That is the Adventure

It's a choose-your-own-adventure version of Hamlet. It's written by a guy who writes comics for a living*, and illustrated by a ton of great indie comic artists. And believe it or not, it's as funny as it sounds.

Noted on August 18, 2013

Right, you’re Ophelia! You are a beautiful and independent young woman and although it makes you roll your eyes when you think about it, you've fallen in love with a prince. Prince Hamlet is funny and charming and he seems to like you a lot. You try not to get too excited about it, because you're worried you might jinx it, but things really are going great.


Only it's been hard doing the long-distance thing while you've both been off at University, and while you've loved studying capital-s Science and you know Hamlet's loved studying capital-u Undeclared, it hasn't been easy. Now that you're both back together in Denmark for his father's funeral and his mother's second wedding, it's been harder still. Hamlet's really sad, and you can't blame him for that since, you know, his DAD DIED, but you wish there was something you could do to help him.
