The Justice League of Stratford-upon-Avon

Are you a literature nerd like myself? Was English your favorite class? Then I imagine you’ll also be powerless not to look forward to Kill Shakespeare, a new comic coming from IDW here in a bit.

In this dark tale, the Bard’s most famous heroes embark upon a journey
to discover a long-lost soul.  Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, Falstaff, Romeo
and Puck search for a reclusive wizard who may have the ability to
assist them in their battle against the evil forces led by the villains
Richard III, Lady Macbeth and Iago.  That reclusive wizard?  William

The trailer doesn’t do the art justice; check out the official site to see the characters in color and looking significantly better. Man, just the idea of Richard III plotting evil with Lady MacBeth makes me happy, although it also makes me nervous the football players are going to beat me up for my lunch money again. High school flashbacks, man. No good. No good at all.
