Shakespeare Manga Theater

Osamu Tezuka

Over the course of his career, Osamu Tezuka adapted many of Shakespeare's works. Shakespeare Manga Theater collects them 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)

While this may sound like a collection of manga versions of classic plays, they would actually be better be described as quality examples of creative adaptation and storytelling, by a master of the craft.

Shakespeare Manga Theater is sure to be popular not just with Tezuka fans, but also schools interested in presenting Shakespeare in a format that is easier for readers to engage with.
