This groundbreaking young adult vampire series was created by a pioneer of the shojo/shonen-ai manga genres and one of the world's most influential cartoonists. The first volume of this award-winning graphic novel was released in 2020.
In our concluding second volume, an amnesia-stricken Edgar is found alone on a snowy night in England. Separated from his "vampirnella" clan, who feed on the energy of the living and while away the centuries in a village of roses, he struggles to remember his own name. Will Edgar regain his memory and be reunited with them? In stories like "Piccadilly, Seven O'Clock," "Edith," and "The Last Will and Testament of Oswald Owens," there are murders, mysteries, seances, and obsessions — and generations of humans whose lives are profoundly affected by a boy who does not age, Edgar, and his embraced companions: his little sister, Marybelle, and Alan Twilight, a 14-year-old from the 1800s. Fantagraphics is proud to present the second and concluding volume of this best-selling manga, which has been adapted into various media, and published here in English for the first time.
"[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
