How about a comic book version of Hamlet, published under the Classics
Illustrated imprint, by First Comics a decade or more ago.  Cut was the
discussion between Laertes and Claudius about putting the poison in the
wine.  Yet the poison was later there and did its work.  "How did it get
there?" any reasonable reader might wonder.
