William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return
We’ve spotlighted his wonderfully genre-bending stories before, and now Ian Doescher is back again with his version of William Shakespeare’s version of the original Star Wars trilogy. This time, it’s The Jedi Doth Return. And if you’ve seen the movie, you know that – spoiler alert! – he doth.
Not only is the book full of the sweet nectar of Shakespeare-style iambic pentameter, but there’s also plenty of black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork to gaze upon. “O Han Solo, Han Solo! Wherefore art thou Han Solo?” we imagine Princess Leia might call out. Of course, we’d try our hand at more dialogue, but that’s pretty much all the Shakespeare we know. [Purchase]
