Henry V by William Shakespeare Experience the Classical Comics full-colour graphic novel version of Henry V in Original Text (the full and unabridged Shakespeare text) capturing all of the drama of Shakespeare’s wonderful play. “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead!” This has to be Shakespeare’s most patriotic play. The Archbishop of Canterbury convinces King Henry V that he has a right to the French throne; and when his request for the title is denied, he decides to take it by force, culminating in the famous Battle of Agincourt on October 25th, 1415. This award winning title not only provides a wonderful treatment of the text, but also interesting background pieces on Shakespeare, King Henry V and the battle itself. Even Sir Laurence Olivier’s famous 1945 film left out certain scenes – but you can rest assured that the entire play is featured in our version! Script: John McDonald Pencils: Neill Cameron Inks: Bambos Colouring: Jason Cardy & Kat Nicholson Lettering: Nigel Dobbyn Editor-in Chief: Clive Bryant Also available as PLAIN TEXT and QUICK TEXT versions.
