William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back is the upcoming second book in a trilogy by Portland-based creative director and author Ian Doescher that retells the story of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in the recognizable style of William Shakespeare. The book, published by Quirk Books, will feature incredible artwork by illustrator Nicolas Delort. Hardcover and e-book editions of the book are available to pre-order online at Amazon (e-book) and Barnes & Noble. Previously, we wrote about his first book William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.
Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter.
Illustrated with beautiful black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork, these two plays offer essential reading for all ages. Something Wookiee this way comes!
