If you think Stan Lee's GUARDIAN PROJECT was interesting, check out his next big idea coming soon on November 30, 2011: ROMEO & JULIET: THE WAR.

Romeo & Juliet: The War

In this comic book version of William Shakespeare classic love story, "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, Romeo, and Capulet girl, Juliet, 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. "


I for one think it sounds interesting that Stan Lee tackles a famous play as a comic book and twisting it into a science-fiction love story. I can not wait to read about it. What do you think?
