"Othello "and "As You Like It "are the newest additions to the imaginative world of "Manga Shakespeare." In the face of the false evidence produced by the conniving Iago, Othello cannot trust his wife, and his mistrust leads to the play s tragic conclusion. In "As You Like It," Rosalind, dressed like a boy, falls in love with Orlando. A mistaken-identity comedy follows, with a happy ending (or the ultimate justice served) for those who deserve it. Both plays have been refreshingly updated in the style of manga while maintaining Shakespeare s beautiful language.
