The practice of adapting a play into comic book widely differs from other forms of adaptations. Like for the mostly adapting platform, a film – for those, adapting a Shakespeare drama usually requires an abbreviation of the original and transforming the dialogues and other texts into words. The postmodernistic notion of comic books is highly reflected through the multi-configurationally flexible, fluid and re-modification of the source. One of the modern era's remarkable mutations is the Shakespeare manga. The manga emancipates from the original context. Manga Shakespeare is a series which takes inspiration from Shakespearean dramas. Manga refers to the unique art-style conforming to Japan. The series focuses on the models of the plays, rather than the original context. This instance proves the fact that Shakespearean works exist as audiovisual framework which can be acclimatized into modern modes. Especially when manga is an art form developed in the contemporary ages, and whose nature and cultural context is very vibrant to transfigure Shakespearean drama into something entirely different. However the advantage of the fluidity of manga allows itself to reconfigure four hundred years of western theatrical plays into a bridge between post-modern and early modern modes. Shakespearean Manga can be considered as one of the most recent additions in a series of multidimensional Shakespearean adaptations.
