Comic Booked Guest Writer 08/10/2011 ZDONOTUSE

I just got this sent across my digital desk. At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss this as yet another remake of Shakespeare’s classic story, but after reading the release, I have to admit I’m excited. Not only is Stan “The Man” Lee teaming up with the creative force of Terry Dougas, and Skan Srisuwan to bring a new spin on that classic story, but they’re bringing us cyborgs, enhanced humans and a war between families. Could you really ask for any more? I know I’ll be waiting with baited breath for the release of this project. Take a look for yourself.

Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?- At Comic Con 2011

Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment and 1821 Comics Romeo and Juliet: The War to debut at New York Comic Con

Los Angeles, CA August 9th, 2011.Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment and 1821 Comics announced today that they will debut Romeo and Juliet: The War at New YorkComic Con 2011. Stan Lee will be on hand to showcase the book and sign special limited edition mini posters promoting the title. Pre-release orders are being taken at the 1821 Comic’s booth #1458.

Romeo and Juliet: The War takes Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers and places them in the futuristic sci-fi/fantasy Empire of Verona, the most powerful territory on Earth. The MONTAGUES, powerful cyborgs made of artificial DNA, and the CAPULETS, genetically enhanced humans known for their speed and agility, worked in tandem to destroy all threats to the city. With no one left to fight, the Montagues and Capulets found themselves a new enemy: each other.

Stan Lee commented, “This is the graphic novel I’ve always dreamed of doing. Take one of the world’s greatest stories, known and loved throughout the globe, place it against the background of a future age, a more violent, science-gone-mad age–embellish it with the most powerful, dazzling, illustrations ever seen and produce it in the largest, most impressive format of all.Romeo and Juliet: The War! It’s the crowning achievement in this, the age of the graphic novel.”

    It sounds like Romeo and Juliet meets Bladerunner. It definitely sounds interesting. I just hope it's executed well.
