All plays should be published as comic books.
 
Workman Publishing (1 W 39 St NYC 10018):
        Othello illustrated by Oscar Zarante
        King Lear illustrated by Ian Pollock
        Macbeth illustrated by Von
Maybe they've added other titles by now.

Jeremy--
 
I would be interested in hearing more about your thoughts and writing on the
Shakespeare-Sandman connection. I have read and enjoyed Sandman since the
beginning of its run. You can email me privately if no one else expresses an
interest.

Workman Publishing has at least three Shakespeare comix (Chris Gordon has
already mentioned Pollock's _Lear_, the best of the lot):
 
_Ian Pollock's Illustrated King Lear, Complete and Unabridged_ (Workman, 1984)
 
_Macbeth, the Folio Edition_, illustrated by Von (Workman, 1982)
 
_Othello, Complete & Unabridged_, illustrated by Oscar Zarate (Workman, 1983)
 
        (Are there more?)

Winging two birds with one stone, there is also a brilliant comic-book version
of Doctor Faustus, in which Faustus' 24 years run from 1960 to 1984, with
various bits of modern history going on in the background while Faustus and a
_very_ beautiful Mephistopheles make their way across the foreground. Highyl
recommended. I dont have it to hand, but will hunt up my copy for details.

One novel about Marlowe that nobody seems to have mentioned yet is Icarus
Flying_by Liam Maguire, published by Ormond Books in 1993. Though not a
masterpiece, it is worth reading.

If you follow up David Evett's advice and read Paul Theroux's fantasia on the
theme of Anthony Burgess in this summer's fiction issue of the *New Yorker*,
don't miss the disclaimer letter a couple issues later from the presumably real
(then? now?) Mrs. Theroux.  Future biographers, beware!
