Cheapjack Shakespeare Chapter 1

Watermarked PDF

Sex, drugs and iambic pentameter! It's like "Glee" with booze and Shakespeare as animation producer Shaun McLaughlin (Batman Beyond, Justice League) and Motion Picture Executive Gabriel Benson (Terminator:Salvation) bring you Cheapjack Shakespeare, a comedic graphic novel about ambition, infidelity and a well-timed lightning bolt.


Opening night doesn't go well when a group of hecklers get more than they bargain for: Actors willing to jump off the stage to defend what little honor they have left by making the hecklers fight for their right to party.

"Cheapjack Shakespeare: The Non-Musical" takes to the stage this September.

Shaun McLaughlin began his career writing “Aquaman” (the non-maimed version) for DC Comics. He went on to write for DC, Malibu, Disney and Dark Horse. In 1994 he moved to Warner Bros. Animation where he produced over 400 episodes of television including “Batman Beyond”, “Static Shock”, and the various incarnations of “Justice League”. Besides “Cheapjack Shakespeare”, McLaughlin is writing an animated feature for Omens Studios and preparing a live-action feature.


Special free preview with the release of Chapter 4. Get on board now with a multi-media franchise. First came the graphic novel, a comedy stage show opens in September and a motion picture is in development.

Gabriel Benson worked on numerous feature films that people might have seen during his years in Hollywood, including a lengthy stint developing Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines.  Benson is also the writer of the graphic novels “The Ballad Of Sleeping Beauty,” “Fade From Grace” and the animated feature “Gene-Fusion” which will be released in 2010.  And finally, Gabriel is still working on the screenplay adaptation of “Fade From Grace” which he and McLaughlin are going to turn into a live-action Oscar winner soon.

I thought this was really funny. The art's weird and it's not like vampires or giant robots. But it's pretty funny. It's a good comic if you want something different. [...]

Product Information
Copy/paste disabled
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
