This series is just perfect for a Bardolator like me who also happens to love comics. It's delightful to see the characters interact inside a world in which they all exist--many of whom remain true to the spirit of their roots. Falstaff, in particular, being fat, cross-dressing, and obscene is a great distillation of the incorrigible knight. This volume's tone, while grimmer and darker than the first, still managed to blend a number of different aspects of the genres of Shakespeare originals, yet still speak with a distinctive voice.
I have to say, though, that the conjugation of the speech bothered me from the first word to the last. I found myself having to mentally edit their "Old English" speech so that the verbs correctly correlated with the proper nouns, which was an irritation but by no means a deal breaker. I understand that there's a less-initiated audience this comic is trying to appeal to--which is why I gave it 4 stars--but it felt like the product, in the end, suffered because of the looseness in the language. By no means was I expecting elevated language--just correct English, "Old" (which Shakespeare isn't) or otherwise.
Should you buy it? Yes. Of course. Anything with Shakespeare as a focus is worth looking into, and this does justice to the spirit of the Bard. This series is great, and I hope for more!
