Manga Shakespeare Hamlet GN (2007) comic books 2007
1st printing. Based on the story by William Shakespeare. Adapted by Richard Appignanesi. Art by Emmas Vieceli. Hamlet is one of Shakespeare's most well-known plays, and this exciting manga re-telling provides young readers an innovative introduction to "the melancholy Dane." Hamlet is the typical angst-ridden teen - he doesn't know how to deal with his responsibilities, how to treat his girlfriend, or how to react to his father's death. He has no one to trust, and he even acts crazy so adults will leave him alone. Manga fans - and kids who find Shakespeare intimidating - will be drawn to the style and action of the Manga Shakespeare series, learning that required reading doesn't have to be boring. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8-in., 196 pages, B&W. Cover price $9.95.
