Retells in graphic novel format an adaptation of Shakespeare's story of the Danish prince whose father's ghost appeals to him to avenge his death.

McMillan Palgrave

William Shakespeare's Hamlet is one of the most revered and loved plays of all time. The story of a young man who strives to avenge his father's death has been performed and read constantly ever since it first debuted at London's Globe Theatre over four hundred years ago. Madness, family, and revenge are only a handful of the universal themes found in this tale that still hold great meaning to us today. Artist Tom Mandrake's art combined with Steven Grant's adaptation truly realizes the dark nature of this story. Each character from Laertes to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is recreated in this adaptation in a truly unique form, making it a wonderful graphic novel for readers old and young alike.
