I wanted more out of this. Honestly, I probably wanted too much, but what I got was not great, just more or less good. The characters felt a little closer to what I expected of them from heir roots in this volume, but there was still something missing. I think it probably could have used being more stretched out. Not normally the sort of thing I say, but this could have really spent more time exploring connections to original stories, fleshing out personalities and motivations and differentiating these characters from their counterparts.

The art remains great, and a few of the characters - Falstaf and Iago particularly - really step up but the rest were just so lacking. there were a couple surprises as well, but the actual use of Shakespeare left so, so much to be desired.
