Summer’s here and with it we’re releasing our summer reading list! Each day this week, we’ll give you a new recommendation from a different VERTIGO editor.
This September, Vertigo will publish PRINCE OF CATS, an original paperback graphic novel written and illustrated by Ronald Wimberly (Sentences: The Life of M.F. Grimm).
This hip-hop retelling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet 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!
