As the sequence unfolds, and the references to Shakespeare’s work appear, let me count the ways (oops, that’s Elizabeth Barrett Browning). Begins with a street brawl, check. Teenagers in love, rival houses, corny dialog (sorry), check, check, check. Oh wait, here comes a balcony scene. (I’m going to need that ladder to keep cherry picking like this).

Liberties were clearly taken with a couple of Shakespeare’s lines in the January 17 comic, and if the final double-decked panel isn’t a visual representation of a tempest, than I’ll be a monkey’s grandson.

Did I miss any? If so, I’d love to see any references a better-trained eye can spot.
