According to The New York Time’s, it’s been a slow start to the year, book wise. But they did get a new addition to their graphic books bestseller list, a vampire book! Volume 1 of Blood Lad by Yuuki Kodama has made the big list! Hurray for bestselling vampires! Check out more on this book below…
“The vampire Staz is one of the most powerful district bosses in the demon world, fending off everyone who dares challenge him. But secretly, the fearsome Staz is obsessed with human culture, especially video games, manga, and everything that comes from Japan! When a Japanese girl wanders into the demon world, Staz can’t wait to meet the human and learn everything he can about her world. Unfortunately, before he’s able to ask her anything, the girl is killed by one of his would-be usurpers, leaving just her bare soul behind. Staz vows to help the girl restore her body and return to her former life-especially since it means taking a trip to the human world himself!”
I really want to get my hands on this one. I am LOVING the art style shown! Manga artwork is usually so predictable and blah, all the same, but this is something different. It’s dark and grungy. I love it and I want to see more.
Have any of you read this manga? If so, what did you think?
