A look at the variant cover for 1821 Comics and Stan Lee’s Pow! Entertainment graphic novel Romeo and Juliet: The War. This cover was being kept under wraps until response for the much-anticipated book became overwhelming from the fans and 1821 decided to unveil it. It’s also official that the graphic novel will be available in both a large soft cover edition ($19.99) and a special collector’s hardbound edition ($29.99). The breathtaking book will be printed in a landscape format of 10″ x 13″, allowing for some amazing images to flow off the page. It will be available on November 30th, just in time for the holiday season.
The graphic novel is based on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and was reimagined by Stan Lee and Terry Dougas. The book was written by Max Work and all artwork from cover to interior pages was illustrated by Skan Srisuwan and Studio Hive.
1821 Comics is also running a Stan Lee Autograph Social Media Contest. Each week leading up to the debut of the book at NYCC someone from 1821 Comic’s Facebook or Twitter pages will win a signed copy of the book before it hits stands.
