William Shakespeare, known as England’s national poet and the Bard of Avon, is also known as the bane of English class for many students, but Manga Shakespeare makes the poet and writer cool, blending his classic tales with eye-catching art and a modern Manga twist.
While still staying true to the original texts, three of Shakespeare’s works have been re-imagined as Manga, offering a new look for this classic literature. Even if these stories aren’t on your ‘required reading’ list, you might still enjoy cracking these open to find out how Shakespeare’s characters do in a Tokyo that exists in a dystopian future.
Choose from Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Othello.
Manga Shakespeare is available for $13.95 each at Firebox.
