Manga Art Drop: Alexia Tarabotti & Lord Conall Maccon!


And finally, we have the initial sketches for Alexia Tarabotti and Lord Conall Maccon for the up coming Manga!

"Mark my words, I will use something much, much stronger than smelling salts," came a growl in Miss Tarabotti's left ear. The voice was low, and tinged with a hint of Scotland. It would have caused Alexia to shiver and think primal monkey-thoughts about moons and running far and fast, if she'd had a soul. Instead it caused her to sigh in exasperation and sit up.
"And a good evening to you too, Lord Maccon. Lovely weather we are having for this time of year, is it not?"

~ from Soulless

"Stop humoring her, Randolph," barked Lord Maccon. The fourth Earl of Woolsey was much larger than Professor Lyall, and in possession of a near permanent frown. Or at least, he always seemed to be frowning when he was in the presence of Miss Alexia Tarabotti, ever since the hedgehog incident. (Which really, honestly, had not been her fault.) He also had unreasonably pretty tawny eyes, mahogany colored hair, and a particularly nice nose. The eyes were currently glaring at Alexia from a shockingly intimate distance.

"Why is it, Miss Tarabotti, every time I have to clean up a mess in a library you just happen to be in the middle of it?" the Earl demanded of her.
Alexia gave him a withering look and brushed down the front of her green taffeta gown, checking for bloodstains.

My manga artist's name is Rem. The Soulless manga is coming out via Yen Press. It launches officially at Comic Con in San Diego July 21 (I will NOT be there). It will be available serialized in Yen Plus, a monthly online anthology starting July 11, and as a full book sometime next spring!
