Hamlet: Prince of Pigs is the first volume of Boxer’s tragic-comics, a series that will include “Anchovius Caesar: The Decomposition of a Romaine Salad,” and “A Mid-Summer Night’s Sheep.” In this easy-to-grasp, much-shortened version of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” the tragedy is acted out by pigs, cats, dogs, mice, and weasels. It is sweet, sad, and, weirdly, funny.
