Shakespeare has arguably been one of the most adapted authors across the centuries, around the world, through varied media forms – be they told (written media); shown (visual media, whether direct or mediated) or interactive (games or visual novels). 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.
