Comic Book versions of the following plays are available from Pocket Classics,
published by Academic Industries, West Haven, CT:  As You Like It, Hamlet,
Julius Caesar, King Lear, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's
Dream, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, and
Twelfth Night.
 
These small-format, black-and-white comics seem to be aimed at a young adult
audience.  They use a modernized text, and the illustrations look somewhat
generic, though the compositions are occasionally unusual and illuminating.  I
found them in the young adult section of my local bookstore.
 
I too would be interested in hearing more about The Sandman-Shakespeare
connection.
 
Yours in completism,
Douglas Lanier

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0699 Re: Comics; Marlowe; Burgess
 
Actually, there was also a Twelfth Night and, possibly a few other comedies. As
for Marlowe in fiction, there's George Garrett's ENTERED FROM THE SUN, which is
inferior to Burgess's book, but also fun.  I recall that when the Burgess book
came out in the U.K., it was reviewed in the TLS with two or three other
fictional accounts of Marlowe and all you'd have to do is look up the issue.
I've fallen behind in reading this list (and thread), so possibly all of this
has been said before.
