Subject:        Comic book Shakespeare
 
Workman Publishing has put out 3 of the plays in comic book form:
*Othello*, *Macbeth*, and *King Lear*.  I have seen all of them,
and like *Othello* and *Macbeth* very much (and in fact, bought
copies of them for my 10 year old godson. He is working on the
*Macbeth* now, and his mother says he is enjoying it). I was NOT
impressed with the *King Lear*, as I found the art work a little
to surrealistic to get the story across to a young reader.
 
I have seen them for sale at the Folger, and found copies of them
in a children's bookstore in NYC (called Eeyores - if they are not
in stock, the store will order them).
 
One of the salespeople in Eeyores checked the available titles, and
only these three were listed. She said she had no idea if they were
planning to publish more of the plays.

Dear Chris,
 
Hmm.  What I meant, I guess, was can you send an essay, an analysis, of
Sandman. No, impressions would not do, I think.  Why not look at the
Shakespeare Bulletin and, if you can find them, copies of the Shakespeare on
Film Newsletter to get an idea.  I thought YOU had mentioned a resource list.
My mistake.  If you have trouble locating these journals, let me know and I'll
xerox some stuff for you (but then I'll need your address).  Yes, it's OK not
to send hard copy.  I tried to reply to your address, but my E-MAIL connection
couldn't recognize you.  Any clues?  I'm new, too.  This is like popcorn.  I
should be working.
 
I called Jeff Horowitz to tell him about Steve's comments &c.  He was pleased
but had never heard of E-Mail.  Jeff, as you probably do not know, is the
Artistic Director of Theater for a New Audience.  After getting a not so good
review in the NYT he was delighted.  Henry V did get good reviews in Newsday and
the POst.  Jeff would like to know if he can get on SHAKSPER.  His address is
154 Christopher Street, Suite 3D, NYC 10014-2839. TFANA has done some wonderful
things, in my opinion.  They had one of the best Tempests I have ever seen.
 
Bye Chris and others reading this.  Hello, Steve U.
