PRINCE OF CATS TP
Written by RONALD WIMBERLY
Art and cover by RONALD WIMBERLY
On sale SEPTEMBER 5 • 144 pg, FC, $16.99 US • MATURE READERS
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 a Blade Runner-esque version of Brooklyn, PRINCE OF CATS is a mix of urban drama, samurai action and classic Shakespearean theater…all written in iambic pentameter!
Don’t miss this original graphic novel written and illustrated by Ronald Wimberly (SENTENCES: THE LIFE OF M.F. GRIMM)!

This will either be mad fun or mad dumb. Either way, it will look nice.

THE SANDMAN SLIPCASE SET
Written by NEIL GAIMAN
Art by VARIOUS
Cover by DAVE McKEAN
On sale NOVEMBER 7 • FC, 3.375″ w x 10.3125″ h x 6.75″ d • $199.99 US • MATURE READERS
Retailers: A version of this slipcase containing only THE SANDMAN VOL . 10: THE WAKE TP NEW EDITION will be made available at a later date.
This beautiful slipcase set includes all ten individual trade paperback volumes of Neil Gaiman’s seminal, award-winning fantasy series.
This set features the entire New York Times best-selling graphic novel series featuring painstakingly recolored pages for the Absolute Editions, plus box art by Dave McKean.

I don’t get quite what they mean with the edition containing only volume 10. Is it just an empty slipcase with Vol. 10 in it? Is it a Vol. 10 with its own slipcase to go with your slipcase? Is that slipcase designed to fit into the original slipcase? Was it designed by Xzibit?
