Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The whole of the classic romantic tragedy is presented here in sequential art format, with two additional degrees of abridgement (Plain Text and Quick Text) also available, each featuring identical artwork. Readers frustrated by the subtleties of how to read stage plays will be greatly helped by the way in which this book clarifies the distinction between spoken dialogue and what a character is thinking. Expressive faces and postures and distinguishing features among main characters will help keep the cast straight in readers' minds, and well-pointed speech balloons with amply sized type show exactly who says what. Rich coloring in the period costumes and scenery, splashed across glossy pages, further contribute to the visually engaging quality of this graphic novel, and help it stand tall in the crowded field of adapted classics.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
