Kill Shakespeare

Meet Lady Macbeth as drawn by Andy B. and coloured by Ian Herring. Love the cleavage, lads; fit for a Hollywood movie star. The villainous lady is one of the characters in a graphic novel which pits Shakespeare's greatest heroes and heroines against his deadliest villains, irrespective of the plays they come from. It's called Kill Shakespeare. Canadian writers Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery conceived the idea of treating these characters like superheroes and super villains and setting them to fight one another. Shame they couldn't use the title Kill Bill. They hope to make a film out of it. BBC News has posted some pictures from the graphic novel (CLICK). The title link takes you to the Kill Shakespeare website.

This is one hot looking Lady Macbeth, looking very much like a femme fatale.

Hi, Guillaume.

Yes, she's a convincing femme fatale. But the very best is the Borg Queen in Star Trek: The Next Generation. She is assembled before your very eyes. And what a scary doll! If you haven't seen her, do a Google search for a still.

P.S. If you haven't seen it, Luc Besson's The Fifth Element is on Channel 5 today at 5.35pm.
