Adolescence and vampirism converge in a Manga classic.

There was a lass in days of yore

Limpid locks of silver she wore

So graceful she

Such rare beauty

That God told Time “Touch her no more.”

So to this day, or so it’s sung,

The lass remains forever young

Windblown hair

Of silver so fair

A maid she’ll be till time unsung

The Poe Clan: A race of undead “vampirnella” that feeds on the energy of the living, whiling away the centuries in a village of roses where time and geography have no meaning. Circumstances lead to a brother and sister, Edgar and Marybelle, being initiated into the clan too young, and therefore doomed to live out eternity forever on the brink of adulthood, until a wooden stake or a silver bullet should cut them down. Through three immortal adolescents and the mortals whose lives they touch, three-time Eisner nominee Moto Hagio explores what it means to live and to die, to have loved and to have lost. The award-winning Poe Clan is Fantagraphics’ fifth graphic novel by the groundbreaking and revered Shōjo artist Moto Hagio.
