If there is a criticism with the graphic novel medium for Shakespeare’s plays, it’s in the language itself. Inevitably, much of the lyricism is lost...But this has to be balanced against the benefits...as “clueing up” readers who are less familiar with the Bard...

Synopsis

Featuring spectacular and quirky illustrations, this astounding take on Shakespeare’s famous work reimagines but in no way detracts from the feel of the original. The full text of the play is worked into this thrilling and visually stunning graphic novel.
