DC Vertigo have announced they will be publishing Prince Of Cats, an original graphic novel, in September.
The softcover is a ‘hip-hop retelling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet’ written and illustrated by Ronald Wimberly (Sentences: The Life of M.F. Grimm).
“[The story] focuses on Tybalt (derisively referred to as “The Prince of Cats”) and his Capulet crew as they do battle nightly with the hated Montagues. Set in Brooklyn, PRINCE OF CATS is a mix of urban drama, samurai action and classic Shakespearean theater . . . all written in iambic pentameter!”
