Official Press Release

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 York Comic 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.

Stan Lee and Terry Dougas created the story with artwork from Skan Srisuwan. The book is written by Max Work.

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.”
