Plus more-or-less every issue of Sex Criminals, the Sex Criminals trade paperbacks, and maybe some treasured-Zdarsky-rarities too!

DC – Macbeth Graphic Novel Signing http://www.conventionscene.com/2015/02/26/dc-macbeth-graphic-novel-signing/ http://www.conventionscene.com/2015/02/26/dc-macbeth-graphic-novel-signing/#comments Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:57:11 +0000 http://www.conventionscene.com/?p=62285 macbethGareth Hinds appears at Politics & Prose to sign his graphic novel adaptation of Macbeth on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 10:30 am.

Shakespeare’s classic story of dark ambitions, madness, and murder springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel by Gareth Hinds.

Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, Gareth Hinds’s captivating, richly illustrated interpretation takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition. An evil seed takes root in the mind of Macbeth, a general in the king’s army, when three witches tell him he will one day be king. 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?

Gareth Hinds is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novels The Odyssey, Beowulf, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, and King Lear. He lives near Washington, D.C.
