The Art of War Graphic Novel

Harper Perennial, an imprint of HarperCollins, has announced it will publish The Art of War: A Graphic Novel on July 31, 2012. The graphic novel was written by Kelly Roman and illustrated by Michael DeWeese. It is edited by Will Hinton.

The graphic novel, adapted from Sun Tzu's The Art of War, tells of a violent near-future when financial markets are militarized and China is the dominant economy. The book took six years to write and illustrate, with most of the pages hand-painted on watercolor paper.

A 50-page sample of the graphic novel can be read on the book's website. The following book trailer was also released. Take a look:
