KILL SHAKESPEARE #1-3
After a bit of insanity and a battle with pirates, Hamlet awakens to find himself in the court of King Richard III, who reveals to our hero that he is the prophesized “Shadow King”—the one who will find, and potentially kill, William Shakespeare. Richard says it is Hamlet’s destiny to kill the playwright/magician/god and return his quill to the king, which will bring about an era of prosperity and unity to the land. In return, the Three Witches of Macbeth fame will resurrect Old Hamlet, our hero’s father.
In the end, the art really started to grow on me and I think that there is a tremendous amount of potential for this art team. Throughout the first three issues, I clearly saw flashes of Cameron Stewart, Phil Hester, and Michael Avon Oeming. If your art is going to show influence from anyone, these are a definitely names to take inspiration from.
