One of the first things revealed on the Comic Con Show floor (like 45 mins after the show was open to the public) was the newest Stan Lee project, “Romeo and Juliet: The War,” a futuristic retelling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet tale with super-humans and cyborgs. This is the first title out of a three book agreement 1821 Comics and POW! Entertainment announced today during a special event at the conference. The revealed art by Skan Srisuwan featured a high fantasy art style with some huge cityscapes and fantasy futurism character design. Look for these books release some time late next year.
