A global audience breathlessly awaits the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and what better way to celebrate their upcoming nuptials than reading about their storybook romance in the pages of a high-quality comic book? TidalWave Productions is happy to present their true story in an exciting new format.
The Royals: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle” written by Michael Frizell with art by Pablo Martinena, Joe Phillips, and Justin Currie, gives context to two perceived fairy tale lives and how a romance flourished despite a fishbowl existence and the ever-present paparazzi.
Available to order on Amazon are three different formats: A traditional 26-page comic book version, a hard back 40-page graphic novel version and a wedding edition with a special cover by famed artist Joey Mason.
“Fans of the royal couple will love this issue for portraying Harry and Meghan as two well-rounded and grounded individuals,” said publisher Darren G. Davis. “But it also has enough pomp and spectacle to match the excitement surrounding the event.”
“I enjoyed fleshing out their backstories in this challenging format,” said writer Michael Frizell. “With just twenty-six pages to tell the lives of two dynamic people, it was imperative that I pick and choose the high points in their lives to tell a compelling story of two people who found each other.”
“There was considerable spectacle and buzz years a few years ago when William and Kate got married, which mirrored the fairytale wedding of Princess Diana,” Davis said. “But this wedding couldn’t have come at a better time as it offers a diversion from the constant barrage of news chronicling economic hardship and political enmity. It’s a good news story that’s larger than life.”
The comic compliments other TidalWave books which chronicled the lives of the modern British royalty. Royals: Prince William and Kate Middleton, tells the story of their romance, Tribute: Princess Diana is a moving portrait of the former darling of the tabloids, and “Female Force: Queen of England. Those books are available now.
TidalWave’s recent partnership with Ingram allows them to produce high-quality books on demand – a boon for the independent publisher. The comic book will feature a heavy-stock cover and bright, clean colors in the interior. Ingram works across the full publishing spectrum, providing assistance to some of the largest names in the business to local indie authors.
