Soulless Manga Cover Art Released
The cover art has today been released for the Manga edition of Soulless, by Gail Carriger, as well as 11 sample pages from the first volume.
The cover, and additional pages, can be viewed on the Parasol Protectorate’s facebook page.
The release of these pages follows the release earlier this month of the art for the two main characters, Alexia Tarabotti and Conall Maccon.
The series, currently containing four novels – Soulless, Changeless, Blameless and Heartless, with the fifth installment, Timless, due for release in 2012 – is set in an alternate Victorian London, where Vampires, Werewolves and Ghosts are the norm, and Queen Victoria negotiates the tense politics that have arisen as a result. Alexia Tarabotti, spinster and sadly half-Italian, is also Soulless. In a world where her touch negates the powers of supernatural beings, keeping her identity under wraps is not the easiest of tasks. Add to this, a scruffy Scottish Werewolf who has a tendency to improper advances, and a flamboyant Vampire Aristocrat with and seemingly inexhaustible information network, Alexia’s life is not that of the traditional Victorian Gentlewoman. At least she can rely on her trusty parasol.
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. YenPlus is available worldwide online, and the print version of the Manga will be available in the US, Canada and the UK.
