    This is Disney’s take on Hamlet starring the Disney Ducks. It’s rather funny.

    This is Disney take of Hamlet. It's a quick read and funny too. It follows the story pretty well, changing some things around and, for obvious reasons, changing the adult themes in the original play. This is Disney take of Hamlet. It's a quick read and funny too.

    I'm really enjoying the Disney comics based on classic books. I liked how Donald Duck was Prince Hamlet in this comic. I haven't read the original story of Hamlet, but I did enjoy this rendition of it. ~ Lizzie :) I'm really enjoying the Disney comics based on classic books.

    This English translation of an Italian Disney comic adapting one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies manages to stay pretty true to the spirit of the original despite having no one die. It's a fun introduction to literature through the power of the Ducks.

    Hamlet without the death and violence? Ok, I'll bite. Starring Donald Duck!? Bonus! This quick comic follows the plot of Hamlet fairly well except instead of being murdered (view spoiler)[the king is made invisible. All the tragedies of Hamlet are met at a much smaller scale with cartoon violence like a bump on the head. (hide spoiler)] The illustrations are wonderful, the story is fun.

    I haven't read Hamlet, the real play, at all so this was interesting. All I know is that everyone dies in Hamlet or something so I can't compare this book to the real Hamlet. No one died in this book though, not really. This book had great illustrations though (the typical Disney character illustrations), but the story was just okay. I wasn't super into it, but it wasn't boring. I did find some of the character names confusing though because the beginning of them were really similar.

    I thought it was okay. The changes to the original were silly, but seeing as it is intended for children i get them lol In this version, Ducklet (Hamlet)'s uncle isn't dead but invisible and keeps harrassing him to make justice. Ophelia doesn't commit suicide, she just gets nuts after a hit in the head and in the end the entire castle/court become invisible, their story passed on in legend but with all characters still inside, looking out.

    Oh, how I wanted to like this book. The story is just not very good, the pace is not compelling, attempts to be clever fall flat, and that just begins the problems. I gladly acknowledge that the Italian original written by Girogio Salati and drawn by Paolo de Lorinzi MAY have been great, but this English translation is very disappointing.

    A nice kid friendly and hilarious retake on a Shakespeare classic. Leave it to Scrooge & Donald to turn this tragedy into an adventure! The art is also very well done.
