What is most important, Shakespeare asks, loyalty ...
What is most important, Shakespeare asks, loyalty to your leaders or to your country? Can good ever come of evil actions, and are those who speak of freedom always trustworthy?
Now imagined as a thrilling graphic adventure, William Shakespeare's classic retelling of actual historical events is revealed as a timeless political thriller - a bloody saga of friendships betrayed, alliances destroyed, and a nation torn apart by civil war.
Verdict Seeing Caesar rendered as sequential art is a treat for those already sold on Shakespeare, and it’s a novel alternative to the regular text. Still, that’s not enough to capture and hold the attention of hi-lo readers, its intended audience, who may find “No Fear Shakespeare” or “Manga Shakespeare” graphic novels series more accessible. Optional but worthwhile for those wanting to introduce younger readers to the works of the Bard. Scenes of violence and gore; suitable for YA and up.—J Osicki, Saint John Free P.L., NB
