Shakespeare's MACBETH has been magically transformed into a highly engaging graphic novel produced by Classical Comics.
The quick text edition offers a simplified version of the Scottish tale by using as few words as possible on the page. The lack of Shakespearean dialogue does not deter from the original tale; in fact, it enhances the play.
Students who struggle with Shakespeare's language will be relieved to see this edition. They can read the original MACBETH while using the graphic novel as a supplemental tool. Teachers may wish to use these novels as a refresher before diving into a unit on Shakespeare.
The artistry in this graphic novel is also amazing! The characters are drawn well with nice, clean lines. The panels are extremely colorful, making the pictures appear to jump off the page.
The Dramatis Personae page provides thumbnail drawings for each character, which will help readers identify the players. The Contents Page breaks the story down into acts and scenes, thereby allowing readers to find specific parts within the play.
I am very impressed with the work Classical Comics is producing. As a teacher, I know how difficult it is to get students to read Shakespeare. These novels will make my job much easier in the future!

The action moves well across the pages. The supernatural is brilliantly done. This is excellent work.
The characters are easy to follow, the text is the classic text, and the battle scenes rock.
I think that this is hands down the best way to read a play. However, I think live plays are still better, I saw the Tempest at my school when I was but a young pup and that was pretty good.
You get some obvious facial expressions that cue the reading into what's going on, which with the cryptic and archaic iambic pentameter almost seems necessary. I think that the whole of exactly what is in O'l Will's work is in here with "no" exclusions. Still without the aid of some sparknotes, an English Lit nerd, or some other resource it's a rough read.
The artwork and color are of a good comic book quality, the expressions favor facial expressions above reality and the shading it a little over the top, but hey I prefer this to more realistic looking people since real people are much more difficult to read.
So yeah five stars wonderful idea, I think I'll pick up some more a bit later on.
"Macbeth" dramatizes the dynastic wars of eleventh century Scotland, where the real life Macbeth was briefly king. In Shakespeare's take, the loyal warrier Macbeth is tempted by a witche's prophecy and by the ruthless ambition of his wife to murder Duncan, the reigning King of Scotland, and seize the throne. The rest of the story of the slow closing of the ring of fate on the brave but tragically twisted Macbeth, a tale punctuated by violence, madness, and witchcraft.
The graphic novel is a great way to introduce the reluctant modern young student to classics such as Shakespeare's plays, in a format likely to hold his or her attention. These graphic novels containt the entire play; there is no abridgement. The artwork in "Macbeth" is average, but the overall delivery is good and highly recommended as an introduction to the possibilities of Shakespearean drama.
All in all I wish I had a full class set.
