GeekNation was lucky enough to be amongst a small group of guests invited to, The Vault Art Gallery in Culver City last night to take part in an historic event. The Guinness Book of World Records presented Stan Lee with an award for the World’s Largest Graphic Novel, “Romeo and Juliet: The War.”
“Romeo and Juliet: The War” is one of the most sought after coffee table books right now. The original edition is available in both hardcover and paperback. Both versions have hit the New York Times Best Seller list several times. “Romeo and Juliet: The War” is the brainchild of Stan Lee, Paris Kasidokostas Latsis and Terry Dougas, founders of 1821 Comics and Stan’s producing partner Gill Champion, President and CEO of POW! Entertainment.
“Romeo and Juliet: The War” is printed as a beautiful large coffee table book with the story re-imagined by Stan Lee and Terry Dougas, written by Max Work and artwork by Skan Srisuwan.
In attendance to present Stan with his Guinness Book Award, and the unveiling of the World’s Largest Graphic Novel, actor/director and frequent Comic Con guest, Thomas Jane, star of HBO’s Hung and Marvel’s Punisher.
To sweeten the event, Stan signed original artwork and books for a silent charity auction for the John Wayne Cancer Institute. As usual, Stan was sprite and cheery, cracking jokes with the men and flirting and taking photos with the ladies. From the reactions of the crowd and the amount of guests walking out with signed books and art, I’d say the event was a resounding success.
