A touch of Manga Shakespeare

I’ve been looking through the terrific Manga Shakespeare books – we’ve got Othello and Julius Caesar at home – and I’m so impressed. The Caesar, illustrated by Mustashrik is particularly cool.

Of the many other titles available, the other that really stands out is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Illustrated by the hugely talented Kate Brown, who some of you might also know from the sadly now defunct DFC. (Check out her comic online here!)

I do owe the DFC a full post, as so much good has come out of it. But many of the brilliant writers and illustrators are heading to Crystal Palace for our book festival, so I’ll do a proper round-up then.

And as a side note, anyone searching for The Mousehunter will likely have seen that my site got hacked recently. Some very dodgy/nasty stuff was added to the code, and because of it the Google search displays BAD words. I apologise. Should be back to normal soon, I hope.
