This was a little tough to get through because the Shakespeare-esque language is so dense (some of the dialogue is directly from Romeo & Juliet and all of it feels like it could be), and I feel like I probably definitely missed some things because of it. Overall, though, this was an excellent graphic novel. I read the recently released Image oversized hardcover, and the larger format was great for really seeing the details of the characters and the action; this probably would have been TOUGH to read in the traditional comic book size.

It was interesting and refreshing to see familiar characters be given new life and motivations, and transforming the streets of Verona into an urban gang environment was a really inspired choice.

I think there's a lot of good stuff to talk about here when it comes time for our book club discussion.
