    Really cool conceit, I was confused sometimes with the panelling, as to what was going on, but as the book went on it got and fully developed, and the characters got and interesting Definitely want to keep up and see where it goes

    I came here to watch Shakespeare be hunted down and killed by his own characters and I honestly feel so betrayed.

  3. says:

    This is such an amazing concept, and when I first heard about it, I was taken aback by how unbelievably awesome it might be Some of Shakespeare s most memorable characters face off against each other in a desperate race to find a wizard named William Shakespeare Othello, Juliet, Falstaff, and others believe that Will will deliver them from the tyranny of King Richard III Richard, along with the Macbeths and Iago, plot to kill Shakespeare and obtain his quill and with it, his magic Thrust into the middle of this conflict is Hamlet, initially rescued by Richard and dubbed the Shadow King , prophesied, according to Richard, to kill Shakespeare and free England from the wizard s tyranny Later, Hamlet escapes from Richard s grasp and learns that not all is what it seems with the King of England But the question remains whose side is he on, and who is this elusive Shakespeare Would that I could give this book the rating it deserves for its concept alone Alas, in execution Kill Shakespeare leaves me feeling somewhat unsatisfied There s plenty to like about this boo...

    An interesting story, but one that felt a little off I m not sure what to make of this, yet I did enjoy the bonus story at the end, though The treatment of women particularly Lady Macbeth was somewhat oogy Also, there are reall...

    What Fables does for fairy tales, Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer of all time, proclaimed the back cover of the graphic novel, and that was enough for me, although perhaps I should have heeded the ironic warning implicit in those words one attempts to improve on the greatest writer how The setup is certainly Fables esque Hamlet is shipwrecked on his way to England and washes up on the shore of some distant land ruled by the tyrant Richard III in a sinister alliance with Lady Macbeth , against whom a rebellion is fomenting, led by the likes of Juliet, Othello, and Falstaff These disparate characters are tied together by the mysterious and as yes unseen figure of Will Shakespeare wizard, charlatan, or myth though he may be An intriguing premise, but unfortunately the execution leaves much to be desired.The pacing is a bit hectic, as new characters keep bumping into each other, and the various subplots are laid down Perhaps, as plot progression allows space to breathe, this won t be an issue, but here it stands out The erratic nature of the plot is magnified, however...

    I ve not thought of myself as a reading snob or snooty English teacher I may have to rethink that after this graphic novel In an attempt to find Shakespeare related books and broaden my graphic novel experience only memoirs so far both good , I picked this up The premise seemed fun a bunch of Shakespeare s characters live in a world where he is God and different factions are trying to kill or worship him Maybe this would be a fun way to put newfound Shakespearean knowledge to work for students and a fun diversion for me Not so much In fact, not at all.The story is hard to follow, even the pictures are hard to follow yes, I ve read my share of comic books, so I m not illiterate Isn t that Comics 101 Don t even get me started on the inconsistent use of thee, thou and you sometimes even in the same dialogue bubble Couple that with ste...

    This was a pretty good graphic novel Definitely reminded me of the Fables series They took stories we all know and love ok ok, at least know and tolerated in high school and transformed them into an interconnected, intense, and twisted tale with murder, madness, and intrigue At first my memory of some of Shakespeare s characters was a bit lacking but even without recognizing all of them my lack of knowledge did not detract from the story or their parts in it The art is perhaps my favorite part of this graphic novel although I will admit to being confused a couple of times It wasn t until I read the entire left page that I realized the art continued across both pages and I was skipping parts Despite that the pacing w...

    What would happen if Hamlet, Lady Macbeth and Richard III walked into a pub They would sympathise immediately, ally themselves to form the Great Unholy Trinity of Evilest Evil in the Universe, and start scheming how to murder William Shakespeare, the genius Elizabethan playwright Now, what has good old Will done to these three lunatics Written them like lunatics, obviously, an...

    A neat idea but with flaws in its realization As you might expect references to Shakespeare abound here so expect to get out of this if you re already a fan of his plays The conceit of a group of Shakespeare villains working together to kill the bard is a fun one and all of the characters were well selected, each feeling very distinctive I particularly liked the introduction of Falstaff and the nice nod to all of the cross dressing comedies.The universe is not entirely explained though in this first book and certainly I was left questioning how these characters came up with their plan and whether they are fictional beings given form or real people yet to be immortalized by the bard The other issuing I didn t love about the book was its artwork which while lively and having lots of personality is a little rough around the edges Women in particular don t fare so well, se...

    The synopsis behind this is really awesome Shakespeare s most famous characters are out on a quest to find him, either to help him or to kill him The idea is that Shakespeare is a sort of god with divine right the bad guys Richard III, Iago, Lady Macbeth are out to steal his quill and take back their free will However, this left me pretty disappointed The plot was fun and engaging, but I expected a lot from something called Kill Shakespeare I expected a good amount of research into the characters, and I just didn t feel that For the most part, the char...
