“Reluctant readers who appreciate manga and who would not think of picking up the work of Shakespeare are sure to gravitate toward these titles. Even if the text puts them off, they will be drawn to the illustrations. These adaptations would make wonderful additions to any school or public librarys manga collection.” —VOYA

 

“Refreshingly clear, this adaptation is recommended for all libraries serving teens.” —Kirkus Reviews

 

“This fresh new way of looking at a classic will draw new readers to Shakespeare, hopefully to discover that his plays are really quite entertaining.” —YAbookscentral.com

“Double double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble . . .” So say the eerie trio of witches in Shakespeares Macbeth, a story full of ghosts, witches, bloody ambition, and nonstop action. After Macbeth hears the witches prophecy that he will be king, he will stop at nothing to make it so. Vividly adapted using Shakespeares own words in the fast-paced and immediate style of manga, Macbeth is the perfect addition to the Manga Shakespeare series—ideal for students and manga fans alike.
