Each title offers:

  • Edited original text
  • Modern English translation
  • Fully illustrated comic style presentation

‘An accessible and entertaining way to introduce young people to Shakespeare, without dumbing them down… also good value.’ Review, Home Education Advisory Service Bulletin, Issue 45

‘Both my boys used the comic books to help them with their studies. As beginners to Shakespeare, they made their understanding and enjoyment so much greater. For boys who were not keen readers, the comic book format was an outstanding help. James never reads, but he loved Macbeth. He would have struggled otherwise. I can’t speak highly enough of them.’  Mrs C Baker, parent, Sheffield.

‘I really like the blood on the dagger and the red witch eyes.’  Sonni, aged 6, Kent

‘It made Romeo and Juliet really understandable and entertaining. It helped me with my GCSE.’  Mary Edwards, student, Buckinghamshire
‘Attractively illustrated… intellectually respectable.’  John Clare, Education Editor, Daily Telegraph
