This one just didn't work for me

Kill Shakespeare, Vol. 1 - Andy Belanger, Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery

I liked the premise of this more than I actually liked the story itself.  By the time I got 2/3 the was thru the story I was well and truly tired of all the Shakespearean language.  Now I can't fault the writers for that.  The title is called "Kill Shakespeare" but after a brief while it's just irksome.  I also found the changes from one story line or plot to the next disjointed and difficult to follow.  Hamlet keeps being pulled or dropped into other character's story lines and I found myself struggling with associating characters with their original play. Frankly, I'm too old and it's been 30+ years since I've read any of his plays.  Needless to say, I admit to just giving up at the 75% mark.  I no longer cared if Hamlet managed to find and kill Shakespeare.
