Manga King Lear

Wow. So far, I am really impressed with this adaptation, as are two younger associates, to whom I am reading it aloud. Although it's sensitively edited, this is the real text, not a modern-language dumbing-down. It's brought to life with vivid, dynamic illustrations and a risky re-imagining of the setting that is working for me. Quite an accomplishment. Buy it here.
