A taut adaptation of Shakespeare's masterwork by Gareth Hinds -- the standard-bearer of graphic-novel retellings of literary classics.

This artful edition -- like an extraordinary stage performance -- offers a striking new perspective on one of the most powerful and beloved tragedies in the English language.
