Check out an inventive Swan Lake comic from Ping Zhu

Comics have been home to stories from various mediums, but this might be a new one.

The ambitiously creative UK publisher Nobrow has recently released a a comic take  of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake ballet by artist Ping Zhu. In this impressively inventive fold out comic, the cartoonist shows the performance on one side of the accordion-style book, while on the other Zhu shows the backstage antics. Here’s picture of the book, provided by the publisher:

The comic is on sale now in the UK, and will be coming to the United States in September. Earlier this year I wrote a profile about Nobrow for Publishers Weekly which you can read at this link.
