Much ado about nothing graphic novel
Manga Shakespeare: Much Ado about Nothing by Richard AppignanesiTheyve done a pretty good job with the editing for this edition. These manga shakespeares are, necessarily I suppose, heavily abridged from the complete plays, though the text is actually Shakespeare. Hamlet suffers from over-cutting. But Much Ado About Nothing seems to come out nicely: the plot is clear and accessible.
I very much like Emma Viecelis renditions of Beatrice and Benedick, who come off looking a bit less manga-y and consequently slightly more mature than some of the other characters (except I would complain that they spend too much time in chibi form, which kind of interrupts the flow at times like, say, just after Hero is jilted at the altar, disowned by her father and publically humiliated by the prince). Anyway I liked them.
It reminded me how much I ALWAYS liked them, because I havent read this play for a while; what a contrast there is between their flippant verbal sparring and their actual deep commitment to each other, with Claudio and Heros professions of love and lack of depth.
(personal note from E Wein: Beatrice was one of the conscious inspirations for Goewin. Goewin actually quotes her in A Coalition of Lions. There was a time when I considered naming my daughter Beatrice.)

Nor can Beatrice, when she hears her friends say that Benedick is hopelessly pining for her. And now Hero is reported dead. It all adds up to another case for Constable Dogberry, perhaps the stupidest policeman on record. This manga recreation of Shakespeare's tricksiest comedy plays out its serial deceptions and counterfeits against the operatic backdrop of a later Italian landscape.

William Shakespeare, - Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School. At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later.
