Anyone reading Hamlet for the first time would greatly benefit from this comic book. You get the story in an easily accessible way. it is no replacement however. The importance of Shakespeare is not just the story, but the style of words - of course.
The artwork is great, as with split panels showing the literal scene with the figurative meaning. Only occasionally does the artwork exist only for itself, not really fitting with the dialogue. As when Ophelia is shown with an overly crazed face before her craziness began.
