William Shakespeare's Star Wars Part The First HC (2015 Quirk) Forsooth, The Phantom Menace comic books
1st printing. Written by Ian Doescher. Art and cover by Nicolas Delort. When the best-selling William Shakespeare's Star Wars presented the classic George Lucas film in the form of an Elizabethan drama, the results blew the minds of Star Wars fans and Stratfordians alike. Now the curtain rises once again on that star-crossed galaxy far away, this time revealing the tragedy, hubris, and doomed romance that will lead to the fall of the Republic and the rise of an Empire. The saga starts here with this reimagining of Episode I, a prequel tale in which a disguised queen, a young hero, and two fearless knights clash with a hidden, vengeful enemy. Masterful meter, Shakepearean soliloquies, and intricate Elizabethan illustrations will leave more than a few readers convinced that the Star Wars saga sprang straight from the Bard's quill. Hardcover, 5-in. x 8-in., 176 pages, Text (with B&W Chapter Illustrations). Cover price $14.95.
