Tanpopo Collection HC Vol. 02Media Release -- BOOM! Studios invites you to explore the world of classic literature in an all-new way with Camilla d'Errico's hauntingly beautiful TANPOPO VOL. 2. d'Errico continues the story of innocent young Tanpopo as she learns the depths of human emotion, led by mysterious guides who might wish her more harm than good in this manga-style, hardcover volume that comes with a beautiful slipcase.

"Camilla's work is so visually stunning—as an artist, she has a style and point-of-view that's uniquely hers," said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. "TANPOPO is a book that effortlessly sparks your imagination and tugs at your heartstrings."

Camilla d'Errico's mythic and mystical take on literature is told through the unfolding narrative of Tanpopo—a mysterious girl guided by Kuro, the devil in disguise. Following the TANPOPO VOL. 1 hardcover, this second hardcover edition continues Tanpopo's journey into human emotion through the works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and a foray into 1001 Arabian Nights. In TANPOPO VOL. 2, a fresh wound of the heart is torn open by the unmasking of Kuro's deadly deception with Ni. His lessons in human emotion push Tanpopo to the limits of her resolve. Is this part of his plan as her otherworldly guide or has he underestimated Tanpopo's dogged independence?

TANPOPO VOL. 2 arrives in comic shops on May 28th with a cover price of $24.99 under Diamond order code FEB141054, and wherever books are sold on June 3rd under ISBN number 978-1-60886-337-2.
