This graphic novel retells the story of Macbeth. Macbeth gets a prophecy claiming he will be king. He acts on it violently. Eventually, his violence brings justice down upon him.

This novel contains some of the same dialogue that the original does. This keeps it relevant to the original by allowing you to talk about how the language was different. There are also some occurrences that will have to be explained. For instance, why Macbeth feels entitled to the throne although he isn't kin to the king.

ON the whole, I didn't like this graphic novel. I found it to be rather bland as far as art work goes. One of the neat things about graphic novels is that there is cool art work in it. If not for the art, why not read a picture-less version? I've also read Macbeth before, so the plot wasn't new to me. ( )
