When three witches tell Scottish warrior Macbeth that he is destined to be king, it sparks off a series of tragic events. Spurred on by his ambitious wife, Macbeth is determined to fulfil his destiny, whatever the cost. Shakespeare's tale of ruthless ambition is retold with simplified text. The comic strip format provides an accessible introduction to the works of Shakespeare. A map, together with background information on Shakespeare and the original play bring added value.
