What Fables does for fairy tales, Kill Shakespeare does with the greatest writer of all time. This dark take on the Bard pits his greatest heroes (Hamlet, Juliet, Othello Falstaff) against his most menacing villains (Richard III, Lady Macbeth, Iago) in an epic adventure to find and kill a reclusive wizard named William Shakespeare.
Hamlet has decided to join Juliet, Othello, Iago, and Falstaff in their rebellion against the powerful forces of Ricahrd III and Lady Macbeth. But the path to their "saviour" Shakespeare is long and dangerous, and not all are whom they appear to be, least of all the Bard himself. As he crosses the threshold into the Globe Woods Hamlet will find out what nightmares may come when one meets their maker.
With Richard III's army scattered the heroes of Shrewbury hope that peace has descended upon the lands of Delphos. But Shakespeare's return has triggered the rise of Prospero - a mad wizard who intends to destroy all creation. Now Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, and Romeo must journey to the wizard's lair to stop the apocalypse. But Prospero's island has the power to poison minds, which means the greatest danger to our heroes may come from within.
With Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, and Shakespeare lost at sea after the destruction of Prospero's island, Titus Andronicus' massive navy sweeps the oceans, destroying all opposition in its search for our heroes. But other threats lurk in the waters - the fabled pirate Captain Cesario and his first mate Viola, who will do whatever it takes to survive the coming storm...
