Straighten your glassicals and ready your parasols. Miss Alexia Tarabotti is making her debut in this month’s YEN PLUS! You may be a werewolf, but that is simply no cause for rude behavior, and being a vampire is hardly an excuse for a disheveled cravat. Gail Carriger’s Soulless is set in an alternate Victorian London in which vampires and werewolves have been accepted into high society. Alexia Tarabotti is neither vampire nor werewolf nor any other sort of supernatural. She is preternatural: soulless. This makes her a particular threat to the immortal set, who don’t fancy the soul sucker’s mortalizing touch one bit, and Alexia’s life of tea and biscuits is constantly being interrupted by all sorts of trouble. Artist Rem has beautifully captured the characters of Gail Carriger’s bestselling “Parasol Protectorate” series: from Lord Maccon, head of the Bureau of Unnatural Registry and Alpha of the local werewolf pack, to Lord Akeldama, a flamboyant vampire with a flair for fashion and for uncovering the secrets of London’s supernatural set! We hope you enjoy the latest addition to YEN PLUS! Please let us know what you think!
This month is also the last of our five-part preview of the Highschool of the Dead Color Omnibus! If you haven’t feasted your eyes upon the lovely girls and horrific undead of Daisuke Sato and Shouji Sato’s hit series, remastered here in full color, now is your last chance to sneak a peek before the color omnibus comes out in November of this year! The color omnibus will collect the first four volumes of the manga into a single oversized hardcover edition. It’s going to be massive! Massively awesome!
