Kill Shakespeare #1 Review

It is essentially an undeniable fact that there is one playwright/poet/supreme being in the history of mankind that is absolute in his genius, and that man is William Shakespeare. 

Be it sonnets, tragedies, comedies or anything in between, The Bard will forever be worshiped as perhaps the greatest storyteller of all time. That’s why, when some two-bit comic book creators want to come along and shake things up, thespians and literature geeks might cringe at first mention. 

Except, they shouldn’t. IDW Publishing’s latest creative venture, Kill Shakespeare, written by Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery (read our interview with the creators of Kill Shakespeare), aims to mix the traversing of the fictional plane present in Fables with the epic quest of Lord of the Rings, and with this first issue, succeeds. The plot of the series is that Shakespeare’s greatest creations – including Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, Iago, Falstaff and more – are both teaming up and facing off against one another to find Shakespeare. Interested? Thought so.
