This manga version of King Lear is set during the era of the Last of the Mohicans - circa 1759, during a crucial time of invasion and displacement along the American frontier. Lear is a venerated Mohican chieftain entering his final days. His elder daughters, Regan and Goneril - the evil pairing - are the more Westernised; Cordelia, with the looks of an Indian princess, is the traditionalist. In this unique interpretation of Shakespeare's tragic tale, a mountaintop snowstorm makes for a dramatic backdrop where savage torture and plentiful scalpings make for bloody action.
