"The standard thing to say is that each age makes a Shakespeare in its own image," wrote The New Yorker's Adam Gopnik on the the Bard's 440th birthday. But over the centuries, the biographical and critical portrayal of the playwright of Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, and King Lear has remained remarkably consistent: "He was a genius at comedy, a free-flowing natural who would do anything for a joke or a pun, and whom life and ability bent toward tragedy."

If you want to see the West as you've never seen it before, go to Japan. Since the end of the Second World War, there have been few big Western phenomena in which Japanese creators have not taken an interest, then turned around and made their own. One of the most powerful imaginations among those creators belongs to Keiichi Tanaami, who came of age surrounded by the likes of Mickey Mouse and Elvis after doing much of his growing up amid the chaos and devastation of war.
