The original play takes place in Verona, Italy. This graphic novel story version begins with a street fight between the Montague and Capulet clans two feuding mafia families. Romeo is the son of Montague and Juliet is the daughter of Capulet. They fall in love with each and like all of Shakespeare’s plays; there are conflicts, twists, turns and tragedy. I never like to give away too much information when reviewing any novel because it spoils it for the reader; however, if you are familiar with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet you already know the ending.
If you are into Shakespeare and like graphic novels you should check out this book.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Zen Poetry Moments: Haiku and Senryu for special occasions).
