Not your high school English teacher’s version of this immortal tale! In brief novel form, author Guy “Cannonball” Maddix retells Shakespeare’s classic romance set in a medieval Italian carnival. With a veneer of tattoos, body art and fetishes, a complete cast of realistic and fantastic characters colorfully come to life. The plot moves swiftly over a three-day period in the lives of the legendary “star-crossed” lovers. Romance, comedy, action and drama blend to entertain readers with unexpected twists along the way to a stirring climax. The book contains over 40 gorgeous drawings and illustrations, including animation, from passages in the story. The first in a series of Ink and Steel classics!
