Duck Prints Press is thrilled to announce our second anthology, which will be launching on March 15th, 2022!
The incredible Gio Guimarães, @sketching-fox, did the artwork for our front cover – and will be doing a back cover, as well, if we can reach our first Kickstarter stretch goal.
In AndSeek(Not)toAlterMe, 16 authors and 17 artists have come together to create an exquisite, full-color collection of stories and artwork inspired by William Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing. We encouraged contributors to stretch their imaginations, think outside the box, and put their own unique—and queer—twist on Benedick, Beatrice, Hero, Claudio, Don Pedro, and the whole gang! In true Shakespearean fashion, our creators play with gender, sexuality, romanticism, and a host of costume changes to tell unique stories—some featuring original characters, some characters from the play—that show Shakespeare’s work in a whole new light.
Stories and artworks feature wlw, mlm, poly relationships, trans characters, gender swaps, canon divergent tales, AUs…there’s even a two page comic! This anthology doesn’t have it all, but it does have a wonderful range to help you fall in love with these characters all over again.
(brief note: yes we have concerns about KS and blockchain, but this project was too far along to crowdfund elsewhere, we apologize…)
