King Lear adapted by Gareth Hinds

There are some great graphic novel adaptations of Shakespeare out there, but this isn't one of them. Even with the little dotted lines to follow to figure out what order to read the speech bubbles in, I was confused. The language is faithful (though abridged), but the art is so-so. Since adaptations really have to blow me away to get my vote, I'm saying NAY.
