Staff Reviews

Deep inside my heart I am still a skinny goth teen in 1997 and this horror/fantasy manga is everything to me. Oozing with spooky atmosphere and beautifully drawn, this manga tells a deeply emotional story of sickness and fatherhood. In this first volume we meet a dapper monster man tasked with raising a little girl who is miraculously untouched by the horrible plague that has ruined the world. One of my favorite ongoing manga series and relatively digestible at only (lol) 11 volumes. — Reilly Hadden


An ethereal fantasy from the editorial team behind the New York Times bestselling series The Ancient Magus’ Bride The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún is an all-new manga series that pulls readers into a magical and enchanting tale about a young girl and her demonic guardian. A haunting story of love and fantastical creatures, The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún is a gorgeously-illustrated manga series. Each volume in the series will be released with a beautifully-textured matte finish cover and will include at least one full-color insert.In a world split between the Inside and the Outside, those living in both realms are told never to cross over to the other side, lest they be cursed. A young girl named Shiva lives on the other side, in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” Although the two are forbidden to touch, they seem to share a bond that transcends their disparate appearances. But when Shiva leaves Teacher’s care to seek out her grandmother, the secret behind her mysterious living arrangement comes to light.

Praise For…

"...The Girl from the Other Side is a masterfully told comic." --J. Caleb Mozzocco, School Library Journal: Good Comics for Kids

"One of the most fulfilling aspects of Siúil is this conveyance of comics as language, of words and pictures as unified text. ... It's been a while since I loved a book as unequivocally as I loved The Girl from the Other Side, and I'm eager to see where it goes next." --Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola

"...the dread and mystery that permeate The Girl from the Other Side are so remarkable that there seems little point in doubting; it remains poised to continue as one of the most fascinating works of graphic fiction in recent memory." --Austin Price, Unwinnable
