1821 Comics

I’m always on the lookout for new comics publishers, and 1821 looks great. You can find them on page 290-91 and 93 in the current Previews catalogue, for December releasing goodies.

You can check out their site too which has a few offerings. Their most interesting offer is a fully painted OGN called Romeo and Juliet: The War. It’s 140 pages and was first announced at New York Comic-Con last year, as was the founding of the company itself. They have a 3 book deal with Stan Lee, which includes Romeo and Juliet. He’s writing it with Terry Dougas and Max Work and the gorgeous art (which you can see more of at their site) is by Skan Srisuwan.

The book tells the story of two groups of superhuman soldiers who turn the Empire of Verona into the most powerful territory on Earth. The Montagues, powerful cyborgs made of artificial DNA, and the Capulets, genetically-enhanced humans known for their speed and agility, who work in tandem to destroy all threats to Verona. With no one left to fight, they have a new enemy – each other.

When a young Montague boy and Capulet girl fall in love, they secretly plan to marry, hoping their union will bring peace to the warring factions. But forces beyond their control begin to conspire against them, threatening their love, their lives…and the Empire of Verona.

The oversized book is also being offered in Hard Cover, which includes bonus material.
