Horn Book
These graphic novels add a visual element to as much of Shakespeare's original iambic pentameter dialogue as can fit into the awkwardly placed speech bubbles. Illustrations effectively distinguish each play's setting, but little about the stiffly drawn figures or their interactions is likely to make these adaptations particularly appealing to readers.
