Pandemonium by Chris Wooding

In this graphic novel Seifer is kidnapped and expected to act as the missing Prince Talon since they look exactly alike.  Seifer comes from a small town and doesn't know anything about acting like royalty and he has to learn quickly.  The country is facing invasion from their neighbors and it's up to Seifer to keep everyone happy and fooled, all while trying to stay away from the prince's elephant-sized cat that keeps trying to eat him.  This is an interesting and funny story which is obviously leading into several sequels.  Like many other graphic novels I've read, I couldn't figure out what was happening in several of the illustrated action panels.
