It had to happen. The “fairy-tale” wedding for the decade can only be captured through the wonderful world of comic books. That’s right, “Kate and William: A Very Public Love Story” has arrived. To celebrate the release of the comic, the Forbidden Planet London Megastore announced a signing event to parallel the pomp and circumstance of the Royal Wedding itself.
On April 2, from 1 to 2 pm, head on over to the Megastore located at 179 Shaftesbury Avenue in London, to meet the creators of “Kate and William,” Rich Johnston, Gary Eskine, and Owen Jollands as they will sign copies of their Markosia Comic release. Also available for sale and signing will be “William Windsor: A Very Public Prince” and “Kate Middleton: A Very Private Princess”.
There promises to be life-sized cardboard cutout standees of the Royal Couple, which I hope no one will mistake for the real thing. There will be Union Flags galore, and even a promise of Bunting! Press Coverage of the event is supposed to be awesome, so make sure you get there early.
I have no idea about the quality of the comic, but really — in this case — it doesn’t matter. It’s all about the Royal Hype, baby.
