Horn Book
This series condenses Shakespeare plays into comic-book format. Though much is cut, the texts use Shakespeare's dialogue. The adaptations cram so much onto each page that they lose both the dramatic effect and the visual potential of many scenes. Midsummer's copious green fairy dust and Hamlet's pink-clad waif of an Ophelia are more cartoonish than captivating.
