Tuesday's Top Ten Comics on THE IDES OF MARCH AND ST. PATRICK'S DAY
Dear Loyal Royal Readers,
We couldn't make up our mind this week, so we decided to do a half-and-half Top Ten. Half for the day later in the week when everybody's Irish and half for the Ides of March, which we mark today.
In Shakespeare's 1601 play, Julius Caesar, the soothsayer warns the dictator of his death, saying, "Beware the Ides of March." While the "Ides of March" was just the Roman way of marking "March 15th" on their calendar, the phrase took on a sense of foreboding because the prophecy was fulfilled when Caesar was assassinated on that date by a group of co-conspirators in 44 B.C., including his friend, Marcus Brutus.
What's so funny about that, you say? Nothing. But here at Comics Kingdom, we know our cartoonists can lighten up the darkness in our world.
So we hope you enjoy Tuesday's Top Ten Comics -- half on THE IDES OF MARCH theme of Betrayal and half on ST. PATRICK'S DAY.
