"They wowed us for their access to the text; the ease of their flexibility – being able to transfer across Original, Plain and Quick Text versions - for the students, they are inspiring and truly second to nothing else on the market." Loraine Lynch-Kelly, Head of English, Saint Martin’s High School, Warwickshire    ●   "Our pupils immediately engaged with the text, and lost themselves in the story and the characters in a way which would no doubt have gladdened the heart of The Bard himself!"   J Pattison, KS4 Leader, English, Northampton Academy    ●  "It’s wonderful to see boys reading Shakespeare for pleasure. The Classical Comics are far superior to anything similar."   Ms Garnett, Elizabeth College, Guernsey           ●  "The concept of Classical Comics is truly inspirational. The stage and page are brought vividly to life. The artwork of Jon Haward is both dramatically compelling and beautifully illustrative. This format is immediate, vital, energetic and engaging. Highly recommended for any student of Shakespeare!"   Sir Derek Jacobi, Actor and Director    ●   "I’m fascinated by your approach to the play and its language. I find them gripping, dramatic and, although for me the original Shakespeare is always my reason for turning to these plays, I think that what you are doing in illuminating and making perhaps more lucid, especially for young people, is clever and meaningful."   Sir Patrick Stewart, Actor    ●
