Manga Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet Paperback
Edited by Richard Appignanesi
Illustrated by Sonia Leong
Shakespeare's famous tragedy unfurls in front of a dramatic manga setting, in which the fair city of Verona becomes a street in the highly fashionable Shibuya district of Tokyo.
The swordfights become duals with katanas; the Capulets and the Montagues, opposing Yakuza families.
Conflict explodes when Romeo - a bleached-blonde, well-dressed rock star - falls in love with Juliet, the pure and innocent Capulet daughter.
