Comments for Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1

Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1: 09/01/13

cover artSoulless: The Manga, Vol. 1 by Gail Carriger is the first of a five volume adaptation of Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. Volume 1 covers the same plot as Soulless the novel.

The original series is full of wacky, memorable characters, supernatural happenings, mystery and adventure. It's a naturally visually oriented book. It's perfectly suited for a manga adaptation. Heck, it's perfectly suited for an anime adaptation — and if there were one, I'd watch it!

The manga version is paired down to the most basic elements and the silliest moments. There's plenty of time to see Conall lose his patience and fall in love with Alexia. Lord Akeldama is resplendent in his best attire. The wax men are creepy, nightmare fuel.

I've read the second Soulless manga and have the third book on order at my local indie. I plan to read the entire series both in both prose and manga forms.

Five stars
