Prince of Cats!!!

September 27, 2012

A new acquaintance reminded me that I haven’t updated this site in awhile, let alone for my new book release!!! So yeah, I neglect this blog because I’m OD-ing on Tumblr and Twitter, what can I say. But if you missed it, Prince of Cats dropped and it’s found its way into plenty of hands. It’s available at your local book store, comic shop, Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and even on iTunes. Thanks to everyone who’s supporting the book! Be sure to let the world know  on B&N, Amazon, iTunes whatever whatever. Write a Wiki!

Here are a few reviews and interviews if you’re into that sort of thing:

Comics Alliance “The comic is a wild ride, clever, and wonderfully illustrated. I got a chance to speak to Wimberly about the book, the influences that led him to construct it, the vagaries of selling one culture to another, and what Tybalt has in common with the average young black male…”

Flavorpill “If Romeo and Juliet were a mix-tape, what would the story on the B-side be? That’s the context for Ronald Wimberly’s forthcoming graphic novel Prince of Cats, which focuses on Juliet’s bad-boy cousin and Romeo’s ultimate foe, Tybalt.”

Comic Book Resources “Ronald Wimberly has a confidence — a tempo — that simultaneously smacks of the ’80s East Coast Hip Hop scene and the future that he created himself.”

WiredRomeo and Juliet gets rewired through streetwise signifiers in new comic Prince of Cats, a postmodern remix of Shakespeare’s Verona that careens into Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock” and Prince Paul’s hip-hopera A Prince Among Thieves.”

Kotaku “…the updating that writer/artist Ronald Wimberly gives to the classic romance story delivers with Prince of Cats feels as electric and alive as the original version must have felt.”

Newsarama “Cartoonist Ronald Wimberly (Sentences: The Life Of M.F. GrimmBlack Dynamite) is taking on this dramatic classic with a new style, a new vantage point, and most importantly, a new lead character: Tybalt.”
