Seven Seas Licenses Riyoko Ikeda's Claudine Manga
(LOS ANGELES, Nov 15th, 2017) – Seven Seas Entertainment is proud to announce the license acquisition of Claudine, the classic one-shot LGBT+ manga about love and identity in historical France, penned by shoujo pioneer and Rose of Versailles creator Riyoko Ikeda.
Born as “Claudine” in a female-assigned body that doesn't reflect the man inside, this heart-wrenching story follows Claudine through life, pain, and the love of several women. Master shoujo mangaka Riyoko Ikeda, considered part of the influential Year 24 Group, explores gender and sexuality in early twentieth century France in this powerful tale about identity. Riyoko Ikeda's career of over forty years is most defined by her epic The Rose of Versailles, and she was awarded the French Legion of Honour in 2009.
Seven Seas will publish the manga Claudine for the first time in North America in a beautiful large trim edition. The book will be released on June 26, 2018 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
