Conor McCreery ☆ 9 READThis was a pretty good graphic novel Definitely reminded me f the Fables series They took stories we all know and love We, the People okk at least know and TOLERATED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND TRANSFORMED in high school and transformed into an interconnected intense and twisted tale with murder madness and intrigue At first my memory Single of somef Shakespeare s characters was a bit lacking but even without reco I ve not thought f myself as a reading snob r 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 nly memoirs so far both good I picked this up The premise seemed fun a bunch f Shakespeare s characters live in a world where he is God and different factions are trying to kill r 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 allThe story is hard to follow even the pictures are hard to follow yes I ve read my share f comic books so I m not illiterate Isn t that Comics 101 Don t even get me started n the inconsistent use f thee thou and you sometimes even in the same

good comic book An interesting story but ne that felt a littlecomic book An interesting story but Rescuing a Werewolf one that felt a little I m not sure what to makef this yet I did enjoy the bonus story at the end though The treatment Making Women Pay of women particularly Lady Macbeth was somewhatogy Also there are really GloomCookie only two women Lady Macbeth harlot adulteress power hungry madwoman goes around with her cleavage allver the place and Juliet young dresses like a boy virginal if not virgin classic madonnawhore dichotomy Really people Really 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 f Evilest Evil in the Universe and start scheming how to murder William Shakespeare the genius Elizabethan playwright Now what has good ld Will done to these three lunatics Written them like lunatics The Jesuit obviously and that s reason enough to kill him murder him assassinate him Why not Who s not wanted the headf an author when he s produced a work where you re not flattered to your heart s contentAll sounds well and interesting enough But then the art isn t the best it could be and the storyline is confusing sketchy and doesn t do a good job With Bound Hands of explaining what s happening nor the motivationsf the characters What Fables does for fairy tales Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer Rim of the Pit of all time proclaimed the back coverf the graphic novel and that was enough for me although perhaps I should have heeded the ironic warning implicit in those words You Can Beat the Odds one attempts to improven the greatest writer how The setup is certainly Fables esue Hamlet is shipwrecked n his way to England and washes up n the shore Stripes of All Types 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 likesf Juliet Othello and Falstaff These disparate characters are tied together by the mysterious and as yes unseen figure f Will Shakespeare wizard charlatan r myth though he may be An intriguing premise but unfortunately the execution leaves much to be desiredThe pacing is a bit hectic as new characters keep bumping into each ther 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 ut The erratic nature Baltimore Catechism No. 2 of the plot is magnified however by the fact that it has no serviceable vehicles to carry it forward To a man eachf the characters bears Mic manual de campanie electorală only a superficial resemblance to Volume 1 What Fables does for fairy tales Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writerf all time This dar. Ite is true I uite liked seeing Othello having to confront Iago Juliet giving a speech about how much she has lost and how she needs to *believe in this Will Hamlet struggling with his guilt The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects over the deathf Polonius and his * in this Will Hamlet struggling with his guilt ver the death f Polonius and his s death and in general being uite useless Kill Shakespeare gives these characters a brand new environment in which they can continue to explore their motivations and grow from their experiences in their respective plays Of course since most One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones of Shakespeare s tragic figures end up driving a dagger betwixt their breasts they need a miracle exemption Not every character fares so well in this typef adaptation I m not a fan Just Joking of Lady Macbeth s recasting as some kindf evil sorceress Yeah in the Scottish Play she coveted power perhaps so even than her husband but her role in Kill Shakespeare seems rather forced The same might be said for Juliet exactly how she went from weeping maiden to warrior maiden TVTropes isn t clear I m willing to cut the authors some slack here because Shakespeare is much like The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy versatile and mutable changing to fit its medium and its audienceI m completing my final year f my undergraduate degree at the end f which I ll be certified to teach high school math and English So while I read Kill Shakespeare I evaluated it not Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) only as a book but with the eyef possibly using it to engage students with the world BENAAMI of Shakespeare Let s face it the Bard is difficult because he s writing in a language and meter 400 years removed from us for a style and form that has evolved well beyond the Elizabethan playhouse So reimaginings adaptations and mashupsf Shakespearean works are valuable tools for conveying Shakespeare s plays to modern day audiences I m not certain Kill Shakespeare retains enough f the flavour and content f Shakespeare s plays to be worth teaching n its wn but it would content The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais of Shakespeare s plays to be worth teachingn its Stay on Your Toes, Maggie Adams! own but it would make an interesting supplementary aidI suspect that ultimately my feelings about this story will be swayed by the final volume Do they actually kill Shakespeare Probably not Will we get to see characters from somef his ther works such as King Lear r The Tempest A short comic included at the end implies that the dagger Richard gives to Hamlet to use Night Train To Cherbourg: A Joszef Kiraly: Gentleman, Vampire Mystery on Shakespeare is the same dagger that Brutus used to stab Caesar I m sure that half the fun the writers had was trying to come up with ways to include various characters and there are so manyf them so I m looking forward to seeing Disowned of that in Volume 2 Kill Shakespeare didn t blow my mind like I was hoping it would but it this first volume is still a decent enough examplef how 400 years Comptia Security+ Sy0-301 Exam Cram on William Shakespeare is still rocking my world Really cool conceit I was confused sometimes with the panelling as to what was goingn but as the book went Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey 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 hiswn characters and I honestly feel so betrayed But softWhat comic through yonder bookshelf breaksIt is this The Cosmic Internet: Explanations from the Other Side one And I like a hot dogn a bunOkay so my iambic pentameter is a little rusty and perhaps I m Marketing Aesthetics only 98% as elouent as the Bard But whatever you groundlings can just keep your comments to yourself You get what you pay forThis is a solid start to what I hope is a good series I m giving this it four stars based as muchn my hope that subseuent volumes are as entertaining as the premise as the content f volume 1 itself which is solid but didn t tighten my girdle strings uite as much as I d hoped When you have blurbs that draw comps to Fables and The Unwritten you re putting yourself in lofty company Fables is my favorite comic series f all time and The Unwritten is a worthwhile if ccasionally frustrating read I don t think this series will uite live up to that billing but if it can approximate those series in the way that my wn poetic endeavors approximate Shakespeare s well that ll be 98% as good Lay n Macduff to volume Richard III Lady Macbeth Iago in an epic adventure to find and kill a reclusive wizard named William Shakespea.
