Do you remember Charles and Diana’s wedding? All the pomp and circumstance? The crowds, the gowns, the guests? Will you take the day off work to watch festivities unfold on April 29 when Prince William and Kate Middleton say I do (or is it I will?)? I don’t know about you, but I always love a good wedding especially when there’s a “commoner” involved.
Now there’s a colorful new way to read up on all the details leading to this latest royal wedding … Bluewater Productions is releasing the biography comic book and graphic novel based on the lives of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Wednesday, April 27.
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.
“The closer the wedding day comes, the greater the excitement for this book,” said Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater, who appeared on a recent segment of the Today show featuring the comic book. “What I like about this issue is it presents both William and Kate as two well-rounded and grounded individuals. It’s a great love story.”
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 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.
