First Drawings for Soulless Manga released!

The first drawings for the Parasol Protectorate manga have been revealed by the author, Gail Carriger.

The pictures are of Evelyn and Felicity Lootwill, half-sisters of the main character, Alexia.

“The unfortunate by product of Mrs. Loontwill’s second marriage, both Felicity and Evylin were markedly different from their older half-sister. No one upon meeting the three together would have thought Alexia related to the other two at all. Aside from an obvious lack of Italian blood and completely soul-ridden states, Felicity and Evylin were both quite beautiful: pale insipid blondes with wide blue eyes and small rosebud mouths. Sadly, like their dear mama, they were not much more substantive than ‘quite beautiful.’ Breakfast conversation was, therefore, not destined to be of the intellectual caliber that Alexia aspired to. Still, Alexia was pleased to hear the subject turn towards something more mundane than murder.” – from ‘Soulless’

The artist is Rem, who has previously worked on the manga adaptation of the Vampire Kisses series.

The Soulless manga will be launched at San Diego Comiccon on the 21 July, and will be serialised in YenPlus, before being released in a full book next spring.
