Merry Christmas in advance! Here in Ghana, we celebrate the King’s birth only on the 25th, but the holiday spirit abounds here and all over the world. So, I think some presents are in order. What do you think? A click to follow my blog? A sweet email (or comment) about what you guys want? A cyber kiss?
I know what I’m giving you guys this Christmas (and New Year’s and Valentine’s Day…): Thomas More, or more specifically, 12 symbolism points, 11 Bible Verses relating to More’s conscience, 10 techniques used, 9 tips in understanding drama, 8 ‘humor’ points, 7 did-you-knows?, 6 something-somethings, 5 powerful lines to memorize, 4 big themes, 3 roles played, 2 general outlines, and Thomas More in a Pear Tree. Actually, More is long dead, God rest his soul, so I can’t send a photograph of him in a pear tree, but I could draw some silly Christmas Comics for your sakes.
But, if you guys want professional silly comics about literature, check out Hark! A Vagrant a webcomic by Kate Beaton, the biggest history-buff I’ve ever seen. It about all the literary fumbles of heroes make in all types of work and it’s at http://www.harkavagrant.com/.
