VOODOO MACBETH – A GRAPHIC NOVEL

STORY, ART AND LETTERS BY NORRIS BURROUGHS

AMERICA, 1936. At the height of the Depression sweeping the nation, in an era of social inequality, a brilliant twenty year old actor and magician named Orson Welles set about producing and directing the new Negro Theatre Project in Harlem, New York. In an audacious move, he chose Macbeth transported to 19th Century Haiti, and starring one Eric Burroughs, for whom Welles transformed the role of witch queen Hecate into a Mesphitophelean Prince of Darkness, so inspired was Welles by the actors performance.

The uniquely personal memory of this landmark event which launched Welle’s meteoric rise, and the controversy in Harlem at the time, was related by the actor to his son Norris Burroughs, and now via a potent brew of fact, memory and magic into this stunning B/W 70 page squarebound US format oneshot from Engine Comics.  ORDER £5 Print, £2 PDF
