Thanks for the new review, Matthew. I particularly enjoyed the very appropriate comparisons to the rash decisions of Shakespearean heroes. (It reminded me, also, of Greg Weisman's mention of how originally they were going to have the Magus offer turning Goliath to stone as compensation, but one of his bosses said "No, have Goliath be so devastated that he begs the Magus to turn him to stone".)

Incidentally, I've been recently reading a history of Scotland - just got to the end of the chapter on the Scottish Wars of Independence - which has included many figures and events in "Gargoyles". Not only Macbeth, but also Gathelus and Scota from the Stone of Destiny's backstory and the Stone itself. (The author suggested that Gathelus might have been designed by the Scots as a way of getting one up over the English, whose mythical progenitor - technically, that of the British - was Brutus, a Trojan prince and great-grandson of Aeneas. Since Gathelus was Greek, the Scots could say "Our forebears were the people who won the Trojan War.")

Thanks for the review, Matthew.

I particularly enjoyed the reference to the famous (if perhaps apocryphal) "fury of the Northmen" prayer.
