The Royals: Prince William & Kate Middleton
By CW Cooke and Pablo Martinena
Maybe e-books are not your speed, and you’d rather see the past re-imagined in a more artistic way? Then be sure to check out this comic by Author Cooke and artist Martinea. The pair collaborated with the goal of illustrating the way that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eight-year relationship evolved and the way that the couple stayed grounded while carrying on a romance in the spotlight. (This tale is also offered in a collector’s edition, with eight more pages of art.) You can tuck your comic copy of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s relationship alongside Female Force: Princess Diana and be sure to leave space on your shelf for this summer’s The Royals: Prince Henry, which will be released this summer!
