The Complete Poe Clan: The '70s

On sale date: November 12, 2024

The complete run of the groundbreaking young adult vampire series created by Moto Hagio, a shojo/shonen-ai manga pioneer and one of the world’s most influential cartoonists.

The Poe Clan: a race of undead 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. The Poe Clan’s narrative spans the mid-1700s to the 1970s: generations of humans’ lives are profoundly affected by Edgar, Marybelle, and Alan Twilight, a 14-year-old whom Edgar embraces in the 1800s. In this groundbreaking manga, Moto Hagio explores what it means to live and die, to have loved and lost.

Fantagraphics is proud to present the complete 1970s run of this best-selling manga series in English for the first time.

Please note: This title is a traditional work of manga and reads back to front and right to left.

Praise

"[Hagio's] work is inspired by American science-fiction and European film, suffused with markedly fluid notions of gender and evinces her unflinching eagerness to explore some very dark psychological places." — NPR

"Moto Hagio is a manga icon who heavily influenced modern-day shojo manga, so it's wonderful that more of her works are becoming available in English. The Poe Clan focuses on two siblings who are turned into vampires. Immortality may sound lovely, but it makes their lives complicated." — Book Riot
