Manga Shakespeare : Macbeth

Robert Deas

“ALL HAIL, MACBETH, THAT SHALT BE KING HEREAFTER!” With that misleading prophecy, three witches plant the seed of criminal ambition in the warlord Macbeth. Spurred on by Lady Macbeth, his wife, he embarks on a killing spree of former friends and rivals, until a final confrontation when he realizes too late that the witches have deceived him. In this version of Shakespeare’s tale of murder and the supernatural, Samurai warriors have reclaimed a future post-nuclear world of mutants.

Robert Deas is a new face of the emerging UK Manga scene. He started his career drawing webcomics including the sci-fi epic, Instrument of War, currently a 148-page webcomic. A spin off, Unity Rising came second in the print comic category at last year’s prestigious IMAF competition and is set to appear in the Mammoth Book of Best New Manga 3. His sci-fi espionage story, November, was featured in Mammoth Book of Best New Manga 2. Robert has also had his work exhibited in the Japanese Embassy as part of the Manga Jiman exhibition.
