Shakespeare Manga Theatre

"Over the course of his career, legendary mangaka Osamu Tezuka adapted many of Shakespeare’s works. Shakespeare Manga Theater collects these adaptations into one volume. The book includes the following: - The Merchant of Venice (1959) - Robio and Robiette (from Astro Boy, 1965) - Macbeth (from Vampire “The Three Fortunetellers”, 1966) - Hamlet (from Rainbow Parakeet, 1981) - The Taming of the Shrew (from Rainbow Parakeet, 1981) - Othello (from Rainbow Parakeet, 1982) Shakespeare Manga Theater is sure to be popular not just with Tezuka fans, but also provide a fun and useful educational tool for schools interested in presenting Shakespeare in a format that is easier for readers to engage with.
