Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Play Me No Plays, Kid Eternity!!

It's a cutthroat world in the field analyzing literary manuscripts, let me tell you.

Kid Eternity encounters a newly-arrived spirit in heaven, who was murdered before he could authenticate a huge find:

Holy schnikes, a new Shakespeare play?!?

Well, Kid Eternity decides to help Delven finish his task, and solve his murder...because what the hell else does he have to do?


Yeah, Kid, maybe this isn't your forte. Maybe you need some help...?




Woo hoo!! I guess this resolves the "did Shakespeare really write his plays" controversy. Heavenly forces wouldn't lie to us, right?

But Kid Eternity is about to learn a very valuable lesson...

Don't mix authors and alcohol!!





Again, don't try to get between a writer and his liquor!!

Well, eventually Kid Eternity sobers William up (SPOILER ALERT: 3 witches!), and he comes back to look at the manuscript!

But!!

Dude, you can't kill Shakespeare!! That's rude!! Plus, he's already dead. Plus, c'mon, man--Shakespeare!! Double plus, someone's already done Kill Shakespeare!

Fortunately, Kid Eternity has lots of friends:


Phew!!

But what about Damocles?!? What about the play?!!?!

Well, that's that!!

Oh, the old "find a fake Shakespeare play and sell it to a millionaire" scheme. That trick never works!!

The lesson--keep the playwrights liquored up, if you want to scam your way to millions. And, really, murder is kind of stupid.
