Shakespeare in FoxTrot's His Code Name Was The Fox

Amend, Bill. His Code Name Was The Fox. Kansas City: Andrews McMeel, 2002.

I've written about one comic from this volume before (for which, q.v.), but that was 2012, and this is 2024. I didn't have specific bibliographic information for the comic at that point, and I also didn't have the other Shakespeare-related comic in the volume.

But now, thanks to FoxTrot Fridays at Bardfilm, we can revisit it with that helpful additional material.

First, the comic I already covered:

Ha, ha!  Great stuff that.

And we also have Paige putting all her previous Shakespeare experience to good work—or at least trying to do so:

Come back on a nearby Friday for Shakespeare-related comic from the next chronological volume of FoxTrot!

No comments:

Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).

Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.
