The tension continues to build in the newest chapter of Kill Shakespeare: The Mask of Night. The famed pirate Cesario has lost control of his ship in a mutiny led by his former lover and first mate, Viola. She plans to ensure the crew’s safety by turning over Juliet and her fellow prisoners to the cannibal captain of the Lavinia, Lucius Andronicus. But it isn’t that simple. Among the prisoners is Shakespeare himself!
Doing the only thing she can do, Juliet makes a quick escape to sacrifice herself and save the ship and it’s prisoners. But she’s not alone, Cesario makes a comeback and also escapes, alongside her, hatching a plan to kill Lucius.
I enjoyed reading this month’s issue. The stakes are getting higher to build up for the conclusion in the next and last chapter of Mask of Night.
In this chapter, We’re also teased with a bit of lore of the Kill Shakespeare universe and shown the face of Shakespeare himself. In addition to the threat of the Lavinia, there’s a little extra drama between Juliet and Hamlet. As for the comic itself, the art and story is still going strong.
