“For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak”

Shakespeare’s most enigmatic play is re-set in a war-torn cyberworld. Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, grieving for his father’s death, takes us on a journey through madness, treachery and embittered love to a new understanding of what it is to be (and not to be) a human being.

Reading the Bard's stuff can be a tough slog for kids but put it in a comic book, and suddenly Will doesn't seem so daunting
