Perhaps the greatest tragic love story of all time, Shakespeare's tour de force of emotional and literary power,
this play needs no introduction. My graphic novel adaptation underscores the universality of the drama by bringing
a multiracial cast to the setting of historical Verona. The art is strongly influenced by classic European comics,
with intense manga-style action scenes, as reckless young love plays out in the exquisite rhymed verse of the Bard at his best.
