This study, deals with is the September 2007 edition of The Tempest from the series entitled Manga Shakespeare, by the London publishing house specializing in graphic novels; named Self Made Hero (SMH) and its unique presence as a brand-new addition to the oeuvre of adaptations of Shakespeare’s works. It also talks about how this particular manga tradition does its bit to hook the readers from a generation who, otherwise, might not as well be engaging with Shakespeare, unless forced by their Academic Syllabi.
