Show synopsis Rome, 44BC, the great general Julius Caesar arrives home from war as the sole ruler of Rome. The citizens cheer the conquering hero, but not all are pleased to see him return. Many fear that with nobody to oppose him, this military genius will become a cruel dictator. A conspiracy takes shape that ensnares the noble Brutus, one of Caesar's most trusted allies, in an assassination plot that will change the course of history. What is most important, Shakespeare asks, loyalty to your leaders or to your country? Can good ever come of evil actions, and are those who speak of freedom always trustworthy? One of Shakespeare's most powerful dramas is brought to life in this stunning Campfire adaptation. Using Shakespeare's authentic text, this book is a must for all students of the Bard, making his works accessible to all. Julius Caesar follows Campfire's adaptations of Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, the Merchant of Venice and The Tempest as English literature's greatest works are given the full graphic novel treatment. All students of Shakespeare's works will benefit from this book as the play comes to life before your very eyes.
