While this issue is merely an interlude, a side-plot for the major game afoot, it is a necessary one and, more importantly, a very enjoyable one. Story is not the concern here, the characters are. Hamlet finally feels perfect on these pages and Juliet shows a softer side. The truth is present in these pages and they will have repercussions down the line. This issue is a tour de force of the storytelling marriage of words and art that make comics the perfect medium for this tale. It also feels like this tale has jumped from being some sort of pastiche homage to actually being its own beast. This isn't imitation; This is evolution. This comic is serious and fun and emotionally draining in all the right ways; a pure pleasure to become immersed in. Read Full Review
