Storyboard Text

  • Our comic begins with Macbeth and Banquo on their way back from a war. They were traveling through the forest when they encountered three disgusting witches
  • Macbeth: Speak, if you can: what are you?
  • Banquo: What are these So withered and so wild in their attire, That look not like th' inhabitants o' th' Earth, And yet are on ’t?—Live you? Or are you aught That man may question? You seem to understand me, By each at once her choppy finger laying Upon her skinny lips. You should be women, And yet your beards forbid me to interpret That you are so.
  • First Witch:All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Glamis! Second Witch: All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! Third Witch: All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!
  • Upon hearing this Macbeth looked anything but excited. Banquo on the other hand was shocked. He wandered how Macbeth can seem so shocked over something so wonderful. Upon hearing Macbeth's fortune Banquo asked for his.
  • Macbeth: This supernatural temptation doesn’t seem like it can be a bad thing, but it can’t be good either. If it’s a bad thing, why was I promised a promotion that turned out to be true?Now I’m the thane of Cawdor, just like they said I would be. But if this is a good thing, why do I find myself thinking about murdering King Duncan, a thought so horrifying that it makes my hair stand on end and my heart pound inside my chest? The dangers that actually threaten me here and now frighten me less than the horrible things I’m imagining.My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, Shakes so my single state of man That function is smothered in surmise, And nothing is but what is not.
  • First Witch: Hail! Second Witch: Hail! Third Witch: Hail! First Witch: Lesser than Macbeth and greater. Second Witch: Not so happy, yet much happier.Third Witch: Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none. So all hail, Macbeth and Banquo!
  • Macbeth then says to the witches you told me what I wanted to hear can you stay and tell me more but the witches vanish. As Banquo and Macbeth was getting over the shock that happened Ross and Angus enter delivering some great news
  • Angus: We are sent To give thee from our royal master thanks,Only to herald thee into his sight, Not pay thee.
  • Ross: And, for an earnest of a greater honor, He bade me, from him, call thee thane of Cawdor: In which addition, hail, most worthy thane, For it is thine.
  • Macbeth: (to himself) Glamis, and thane of Cawdor The greatest is behind. (to Ross and Amgus) Thanks for your pains. (aside to Banquo) Do you not hope your children shall be kings, When those that gave the thane of Cawdor to me Promised no less to them?
  • Banquo and Macbeth was shocked to hear the news of course. Questioning them Macbeth says that the Thane of Cawdor still lives so why was he named Thane? But Angus answered he will be put to death.
  • Banquo: That, trusted home, Might yet enkindle you unto the crown, Besides the thane of Cawdor. But ’tis strange. And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths,Win us with honest trifles, to betray ’s In deepest consequence.(to Ross and Angus) Cousins, a word, I pray you.
  • End
