TONY LEE signs the graphic novel adaptation of the New York Times bestseller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies at the Forbidden Planet Superstore, 38 Priory Queensway, Birmingham B4 7LA on Saturday 19th June from 1 – 2pm.
It’s a fiendishly clever mash-up of Jane Austen’s beloved classic – and it’s one of the most buzz-worthy pop culture sensations of the year. It’s sold 700,000 copies worldwide and has created a whole sub-genre of its own. Now, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes to graphic novel format. Adapted by Tony Lee, it features all-new scenes of zombie mayhem, and brings this gloriously remixed masterpiece to true zombie-loving pop-culture fans.
All over England, the dead are rising again, and now even the daughters of Britain’s best families must devote their lives to mastering the deadly arts. Elizabeth Bennet is a fearsome warrior whose ability with a sword is matched only by her quick wit and even sharper tongue. But she faces her most formidable foe yet in the haughty, conceited, and somehow strangely attractive Mr. Darcy. As the two lovers meet in the ballroom and on the battlefield, they’ll soon learn that nothing – not even the bands of ninjas, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, or disapproving aunts – can stop true love!
