Stewart Kenneth Moore’s “The Tragedie of Macbeth”, “Project MK-Ultra” collections on the way from Clover Press

The Tragedie of Macbeth by Stewart Kenneth Moore

US publisher Clover Press will release a collection of 2000AD creator Stewart Kenneth Moore‘s graphic novel version of Macbeth early next month, which they began serialising last year. They’re also publishing Project MK-Ultra: The Complete Edition in October.

Stewart will be signing copies of the new collection at Gosh, London this Saturday (1.00 – 2.00pm, 30th September) – full details here.

The Tragedie of Macbeth, due for release 7th September, is based on the Prague Shakespeare Company’s version of William Shakespeare‘s “Scottish play”.

Shakespeare died over 400 years ago and no story captures the mysticism and brutality of Scottish history quite like Macbeth. This graphic novel aims to tell the darkest version yet of this tale of witchcraft, murder, manipulation, and unbridled ambition…

For this new adaptation, Scottish artist Stewart Kenneth Moore has pulled double duty by documenting a stage performance in Prague by illustrating it against the starkest memories, places and myths of his own homeland. The pacing of the panels and scene setting serves to clarify aspects of the play that can be hard to understand on the stage.

In addition to this graphic novel adaptation, this volume also includes the original playscript by William Shakespeare, a useful combination for Shakespeare readers, collectors, librarians, students, and teachers.

Not content with one collection of his work, coming soon from Clover Press, an eclectic Boutique Publisher based out of San Diego, is the unrelated and very different Project MK-Ultra: The Complete Edition, collecting both previously released volumes 1 and 2 of Project: MK-Ultra – Sex, Drugs, and the CIA. The work of Kenneth, Scott Sampila and Brandon Becker. It will be available from 17th October 2023.

Project MK-Ultra: The Complete Edition

Through vivid storytelling, this original graphic novel brings to life the harrowing story of the CIA’s mind control program, which used drugs, hypnosis, and other methods to manipulate the behavior of unwitting subjects. With careful attention to historical facts and rampant conspiracy theories, the creative team have crafted a gripping narrative that takes readers deep inside the shadowy world of government conspiracies and covert operations.

Based on actual events, Project MK-Ultra: The Complete Edition is a zany, pop-culture laced Alice in Wonderland ride exploring the history of LSD through the eyes of a young, hungry journalist whose life is turned upside down when he’s sucked into the absurdity of the CIA’s most guarded top-secret Mind Control Project.

“Whether you’re a fan of graphic novels, true crime, or political history,’ say Clover Press, “Project MK-Ultra: The Complete Edition is a must-read that will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the dark side of American intelligence.”
