The Witch and the Beast 4
Dive into Kousuke Satake's suave and explosive manga debut, about powerful women good and evil, featuring a story of vengeance in a stylish, art-deco urban wonderland that's one part Fullmetal Alchemist and one part Cowboy Bebop. Ashaf: a soft-spoken man with delicate features, a coffin strapped to his back, and an entourage of black crows. Guideau: a feral, violent girl with long fangs and the eyes of a beast. This ominous pair appear one day in a town in thrall to a witch -- a ruler with magic coursing through her tattooed body, who has convinced the townsfolk she's their hero. But Ashaf and Guideau know better. They live by one creed: "Wherever a witch goes, only curses and disasters follow." They have scores to settle, and they won't hesitate to remove anyone in their way, be it angry mob or army garrison. A dark fairytale set in a steampunk world of magic and monsters, The Witch and the Beast will entice and entrap manga readers looking for their next fantasy action fix!
