Gankutsuou 2: The Count of Monte Cristo
Random House Incorporated, Mar 24, 2009 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 200 pages
“I have forged my destiny through the power of my own will–the power to manipulate the lives of others, from my own safe shore.”
The Count of Monte Cristo, a fabulously wealthy aristocrat from the far reaches of the galaxy, has returned to Paris on a secret mission of revenge. His first target is Gerard de Villefort, the prosecutor who falsely sentenced him to life imprisonment twenty-five years ago. His pawns are Villefort's family—a dissatisfied young wife, a withdrawn daughter, and a pampered son. From a single drop of poison spreads a pool of lust and horror that none may escape.
Based on the acclaimed anime, this science fiction version of Alexandre Dumas' classic The Count of Monte Cristo is a surreal, beautiful tale of love, death, and the seductive power of evil.
