Workman Publishing has done some beautiful comic books of Shakespeare plays,
complete and unabridged.  The ones I know about are Macbeth (1982), Othello
(1983), and King Lear (1984).  There may be others.

Lawrence,
 
You asked about Shakespeare and Comic Books.  I'm not sure if you mean
influences or story lines in comic books or actual Shakespeare comic books. If
the latter, there's a good series of illustrated Shakespeare books done in
comic book style (all panels of pictures complete with the balloons for the
dialogue, etc.).  Great for introducing people to reading Shakespeare. The
drawings are quite wild.  It's a picture version with the actual complete and
unabridged text rather than a simplified text version. There's a version for
King Lear (illustrated by Ian Pollock), Macbeth (illustrated by Oscar Zarate)
and Othello (illustrated by Von).  Published by Workman Publishing, New York
(paperback: $6.95-8.95).
