Something wicked this way comes. Dark ambitions, madness, and murder. Shakespeare's classic story of a man's reckless quest for power springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel from Gareth Hinds. Macbeth, a general in the king's army, is returning from battle when he comes upon three witches who tell him that one day he'll be king. At first Macbeth dismisses their predictions, but an evil seed takes root in his mind, and soon he is both convinced and impatient. At the urging of his wife, he resolves to take the throne by the most direct path: a dagger in the heart of King Duncan. But blood will have blood, and when others grow suspicious of his sudden rise to power, is Macbeth prepared to commit more murders to keep the crown? Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, this captivating, richly illustrated tale takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition.
