From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
"Lord, what fools these mortals be."
A
Midsummer
Night's Dream


Strange things are afoot in the woods outside Athens. Two men are in love with the same woman, the King and Queen of Fairies are at loggerheads, and a mischievous sprite is about to weak havoc with a magic flower. Meanwhile, an impish fellow named Puck has really made an ass of an amateur actor called Bottom.

How will it all end?

One of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies is vividly and faithfully retold in graphic novel format.

(front flap)
The beautiful Hermia disobeys her father by refusing to marry Demetrius, who is in love with her. It happens that Hermia's true love is Lysandar. Meanwhile, Helena is jealous of Hermia, because she loves Demetrius. Their romantic tangle is only one of several stories that enliven this favorite Shakespeare comedy. Readers will also meet Oberon, King of Fairies, his clever servant Puck, the amusing actor Bottom, and many others. It's a play that is punctuated by magic spells, filled with comedy--and in its final act, good fortune to all.

"Lord, what fools these mortals be"
