ROYAL WEDDING COMIC BOOK WALKS DOWN THE STORE AISLE TOMORROW
As a global audience anticipates the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton, the biography comic book and graphic novel from Bluewater Productions highlighting their romance is set to hit shelves tomorrowâ€” Wednesday April 27thâ€”two days day in advance of the nuptials.
"The Royals: Prince William & Kate Middleton" written by CW Cooke and penciled by Pablo Martinena, looks to give context to two perceived fairy tale lives and how an eight-year romance flourished in such a fishbowl existence.
"This has been one of Bluewater's most anticipated biography books," said Darren Davis, president of Bluewater, "Fans of the royal couple will love this issue for portraying William and Kate as two well-rounded and grounded individuals. But it also has enough pomp and spectacle to match the excitement surrounding the event."
The standard 32-page comic book retails for $3.99. It will be available at comic book retail outlets. To make sure you get your copy, contact your local comic book store to pre-order it. To find a comic book store near you go to www.comicshoplocator.com.
The special collector's edition 40 page graphic novel retails for $7.99. National book stores like Barnes & Noble and Borders will be carrying it. As well as several online venues including Amazon.com. The demand for the book is already so high that the distributor predicts the books will sell out the day it is released.
"There was considerable spectacle and buzz thirty years ago when Charles and Diana got married, Davis said. "But I think this wedding surpasses that one simply because it offers a diversion from the constant barrage of news of war, economic hardships and political enmity. Itâ€™s simply a good news story thatâ€™s a bit larger than life."
Bluewater also announced that another royal will be joining the ranks of comic book biographies. Williamâ€™s brother Harry will be featured in his own book this August.
Also still availible the "Female Force: Princess Diana" comic book.
The "Fame" series was launched earlier in 2010 as a companion piece to the successful "Female Force" and "Political Power" biography titles. The comic allows Bluewater to delve into the celebrity culture and understand how a person rises to fame, deals with the newfound celebrity and continue to produce in the public eye. That includes actors, sports figures, recording artists and royals.
