With Macbeth, K. Briggs completes their adaptation of Shakespeare’s dark and bloody masterpiece… an early portion of which won the Graphic Shakespeare Competition in 2016. Artwork form this project has been exhibited in Elsinore (Denmark), Tokyo, Seoul, and Manila. This book is a vivid graphic novel adaptation of the play, faithful to the original text while providing a new lavish interpretation.
When three witches prophecy to Macbeth that he will one day become the King of Scotland, an epic of unhappiness, treachery, and blood begins. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s ambitions lead to an ever-growing path of murder as Macbeth grows ever-closer to the throne. But where will it all end? Only with death – and with madness.
Briggs, as a Shakespeare reader (and performer) from age twelve, brings their lifelong love of the Bard to this work.
