Not the best adaptation of Macbeth

A graphic novel of a play, with the original text, is halfway to a performance of it. This particular production is not great. The graphical interpretation is stereotyped and on-the-nose.

Both the Macbeths have black hair. Lady Macbeth, with her lowered eyebrows and two dangling, snakelike tendrils of hair, looks evil from her first appearance. (Also, she can’t mention her breasts without grabbing them.)

The Weird Sisters look straight out of a Tales from the Crypt comic book.

I have to believe there’s a better graphic novel adaptation out there.
