Original text of Shakespeare’s play. Full-colour. Certainly makes the text more accessible. Though I think I’d need the plain text version.

This is the full and unabridged play, in graphic novel form. there are also the plain text (original script converted to modern English, verse for verse) and quick text version (shortened modern English).

End pages include a write-up on William Shakespeare, Henry V, the battle of Agincourt (oct 25, 1415 St. Crispin’s Day) – how the terrain, and the Longbow, helped the English win against a numerically superior French force. About the Globe Theatre (they tore down the wood and relocated the building when the landlord raised the rent).

Also explanation and illustration of how the graphic novel was created, and how the scripts were adapted.
