Rose of Versailles Available for Pre-Order – Comics Worth Reading
In 2015, Udon Entertainment announced that they would be publishing Riyoko Ikeda’s classic shojo manga Rose of Versailles.
It’s about a woman dressing as a man and protecting Marie Antoinette as commander of her palace guard. It’s very frilly and starry-eyed, as suits its original 70s period of creation, but it’s also historically significant as an influential story.
In early 2018, the publisher provided an update on their publishing plans. Now, the book is available for preorder, and I know fans have been eagerly awaiting this date.
The 500-page hardcover can be preordered now through comic shops with Diamond code OCT19 2283. It’s $39 and due in stores December 4. This first volume has 22 chapters of the story and has been rescanned and newly translated.
