Kill Shakespeare: The Mask of Night #1
Written by Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col
Art by Andy Belanger (with Ink Assist by Adam Gorham )
Colors by Shari Chankhamma
The Mask of Night is third in the Kill Shakespeare series. It is a series I am unfamiliar with, but sometimes when you see a new number one issue you pick it up and give it a try. I had hopes that a first issue would be welcoming to new readers, but I was instantly lost.
Unfortunately, the art did very little to soothe my irritation with the story. It felt lacking in polish, and to be blunt, rather amateur.
A very solid don’t buy.I found almost no enjoyment in this issue. As a new reader I was lost, and left with a sour taste in my mouth. Nothing reached out and made me feel compelled to further invest in this series or the others in the Kill Shakespeare world.
