From the Back Cover:

A stunning and gritty graphic novel integrating the iconic strategy text by Sun Tzu into a sweeping thriller set in the near future when Wall Street is militarized and China is the world's dominant economy.

Kelly Roman served time for a horrific friendly fire incident. Once free, he discovers that his brother died while working for Sun Tzu, the ruthless strategist who runs China's global financial empire.

From the apocalyptic third world of suburban Ohio, Kelly heads into the futuristic Gomorrah that is Manhattan to infiltrate Sun Tzu's organization and find out who murdered his brother—and why. Using the skills and genetic enhancements his Special Forces career provided him, he'll confront both Sun Tzu and his nemesis, a monster of biotechnology known only as The Prince.

Throughout his harrowing adventure, Kelly documents Sun Tzu's ancient wisdom, which guides him through each bloody battle and hairbreadth escape in his quest for vengeance and redempti on.

Review:

“Ingenious....Roman and DeWeese have made a visual explosion out of Sun Tzu’s iconic understatement.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“The dystopian story is not for the faint of heart, but those looking for a gory thriller will find plenty to keep them busy.” (Publishers Weekly)

“An epic dystopian story. . . . that revels in all of the trespasses and heroism of which only human beings are truly capable.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“In Roman and DeWeese’s graphic novel, Sun Tzu is alive and well” (Detroit News)

“Phenomenal artwork, a brilliant story-one of the best graphic novels I’ve ever read.” (Tarquin Pack, Producer, Kick Ass, Executive Producer, X-Men: First Class)

“An astounding adaptation of Sun Tzu’s ancient text that made me think about its application in an entirely new way.” (General (Ret.) Stephen N. Xenakis, U.S. Army)

“Imaginative, provocative, powerful, and disturbing, Kelly Roman’s Art of War should be required reading for those concerned with the future of America and its place in the world.” (Minxin Pei, Professor of Government, Claremont McKenna College)

“THE ART OF WAR rebrands the millennium. It melts down debased ideology, re-values cultural currency, mints strange new coin and buys tomorrow-pawns everything you know. (Jamie Delano, author of Hellblazer)
