Not long after my last post (on Gareth Hinds' Graphic Novel of King Lear), Rich Perloff mentioned Ian Pollock's graphic novel of the play.
If Hinds has some of Lear's madness in the illustrations, Pollock outdoes it in manifold ways.
First, Pollock provides the complete text of the play. Hinds is good as an introduction to the play, but if you want the whole thing illustrated, Pollock is for you—especially if you're a fan of somewhat surreal art.
I'll provide a few spreads as examples here—the "reason not the need" scene followed by (it seems almost required) the storm scene.
