Excellent graphic novel illustration style - simple but detailed enough to enjoy some Venetian scenery and distinctive character facial expressions. The content is very compact mixing old English with modern dialogue and summarizing the plot without feeling like there's a lot of the storyline missing. Nice introduction with a good hook to drawn comic readers to read more Shakespeare.
