    If you are a fan of Macbeth, getting this comic is a no-brainer, but don't let an unfamiliarity with Shakespeare scare you away. If you really feel like you need the context, click the Wikipedia Macbeth link and give it a quick read. There. You have the basic context. More importantly, this is a fantastic story with something deeper going on in the interaction between the sisters that has me intrigued. There are previous events and power plays hinted at and beginning to be revealed that add layers of context to the story, making the sisters every bit as interesting to me as Macbeth. I love it when a writer takes background characters and puts them in the spotlight, Mairghread Scott does an absolutely magnificent job of that with this series. I'm looking forward to the next 2 issue of the mini. If you check with your store you may still be able to get #1, if not, the collected edition should be along in a few months. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Annie Oct 16, 2015

    Toil and Trouble #2 starts with a slow build up in the writing department and quickly raises in the middle to conflict. The artwork does offer much for the reader to look at and enjoy for its character designs and backgrounds. For casual readers, the comic is accessible without requiring heavy knowledge about Macbeth. For the Shakespeare lovers, the comic will happily add an extra bit of flavoring onto the classic Scottish play. Read Full Review
