In this globe-trotting graphic novel, The Bard and Page butt heads and come to blows with contemporaries and fictional characters alike, from Sir Francis Bacon and Kit Marlowe to Puck and a zombified Richard III. As they get closer to the truth behind Shakespeare’s world-renowned intelligence, they’ll find out the deeper meaning behind love, labor, and losing it!”
