A brave crew of eight set sail for the New World, only to scuttle on the shoal of a mysterious desert island. And so—-as any self-respecting crew of Irish seamen would do– they put out an immediate distress call with some unimaginable results.
“One Million Bags of Their Best Sligo Rags: or How I Came to Stop Worrying and Love Greek Pizza: or “The Hempest.” (The title is only the beginning of the insanity) is the craziest high-seas adventure anyone has ever had on dry land! An absurd tale written and drawn by Andrew Jerz, inspired by characters from William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”
“…The Hempest” is available NOW on the Red Stylo Media Store for $1.99! This download includes EXCLUSIVE BONUS CONTENT, with tidbits from and about Crazyman Jerz, as well as concept sketches and extra panels. In addition, the file includes a page from “Brave World,” another parody inspired by Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” from the mind of A.I. Miller.
Andrew Jerz was raised on a Sandy Beach off of Route 3A a few miles south of Boston, USA on the passing tales of glory in a place called Cohasset Town. By trade, he was a butcher – was well learned and well paid, but like the old boardwalks and family-owned hardware stores of his hometown that knelt to progress, his trade’s lost to memory. Andrew has done editorial work for a number of publications mostly headquartered between Springfield, MA and Buffalo, NY at equally spaced intervals along the I-90 corridor (once known as the Mohawk Trail and, at some points, the Erie Canal); he has lived in Boston City with his illustrious Common Sense Advisor, Susan, since the rare old times.
SHAKESPEARE SHAKEN is a folio of thirty original comic stories and vignettes inspired by the plays, poetry and life of William Shakespeare. This isn’t a wad of moist pantaloons laying behind some trees in Denmark…it’s Shakespeare SHAKEN, not stirred!
