Details on the Manga Release

Soulless Vol. 1 the manga is officially up for pre order. I’m very excited about this version of the book, the art is wonderful, you should see some of the dresses!

 

There’s links to all the original character sketches on my website.

10 manga FAQs

1. The digital version has been serialized through Yen Plus over the past six months. Available by subscription.
2. This is the print version of the manga, it’s officially called Soulless Vol. 1

3. You can get it in the USA or the UK.
4. A digital version of the entire manga will be available, shortly after the print release for all digital versions. It will be through Yen Press, no exact date so far, and no details on country restrictions. Sorry, I will let you know when I do.
5. Yen is already starting on the manga adaptation of Changeless, but it will be called Soulless Vol. 2.
6. The artists name is REM.
7. It is an adaptation of the first book, not a scene-for-scene copy. Dialogue and text was mostly taken from Soulless. I had approval and went over the copy. Yen was amazing about involving me in every step of the process, from initial character sketches to text to drawings.
8. I’ve seen it all, plus the cover art for the next book, and I absolutely love it.
9. It is manga ~ everyone is young, clean shaven, and cute. Yes, even the werewolves.
10. Yes, REM drew that carriage scene at the very end of the book. Mmmmm.

Rumor on the net is the Previews, the comic shop magazine, has Soulless Vol. 1 the manga for preorder (I think you have to find and go into a comic shop). Also they have chosen it as a staff pick, and it has a spread inside the cover of the magazine. I haven’t seen it, but my spies are everywhere.
