Well, this entire process has been a learning experience – I never fully considered the ramifications of there being nudity in the graphic novel, even if the mature content comprises only two pages.
A big part of my intention is to get the graphic novel into high schools, which with these two pages would clearly not be possible. So once the first issue is complete it looks like we’re going to have to produce two versions, one “sanitized” for schools.
I’m not sure what that will look like, but it would still have to be exciting and get the story across which will be a bit of a challenge. But challenges can be overcome!
Help us make more pages, faster!
Shakespeare's Sonnets Exposed, my podcast analysing the sonnets, is available on industrial curiosity, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and YouTube.
For those who prefer reading to listening, the first 25 sonnets have been compiled into a book that's available in both e-book and paperback formats on the Kindle and Google Play stores.
