So we've jumped forward a bit - Macduff goes to wake the king and finds him dead; Macbeth goes up to "check" on the king and slaughters the framed footmen. Everyone's bewailing and carrying-on except for Malcolm and Donalbane, the king's sons, who opt to flee lest they be killed next. Banquo gets further second thoughts, and goes off for a ride with his only son, and Macbeth - incredibly transparently - wheedles the key info about the ride and sends murderers after them. He sends two, and a third shows there unexpectedly. The only version I ever saw had the servant also serve as the third murderer. They kill Banquo, but Fleance escapes. At a feast for the most important people, the murderer arrives to make his or her report to Macbeth - where we are right now in the comic. The report's made in the middle of the dinner party, as you see in the background.

Our guest star today is "Cancerkitty," the author of "Bricks of the Dead," an impressive Lego webcomic that traffics in the tropes of zombie films. Here's the link: http://bricksofthedead.com/
