Available for the first time in English, Dark Horse Manga presents Innocent Omnibus Volume 1 by Shin’ichi Sakamoto, a gripping historical drama inspired by historic figures and events. This first omnibus collects Volumes One through Three of the original manga series.
Blood, death, and duty—the title bequeathed to the heir of the royal executioner becomes a burden too heavy to bear.
Born into a family of executioners, Charles-Henri Sanson must take up his father’s mantle as the Royal Executioner of Paris. Conflicted between his desire to honor the family name and to rebel against the longstanding practice, he chooses to follow tradition, but vows to be the last executioner—the last Sanson to spill blood in the name of justice.
Shin’ichi Sakamoto gracefully captures the beauty, romance, and brutality of 18th century France and masterfully fictionalizes the true life of Charles-Henri Sanson, known as the Monsieur de Paris—”Gentleman of Paris” who performed nearly 3,000 executions.
Innocent Omnibus Volume 1 (of three) will be in bookstores November 21, 2023 and in comic shops November 22, 2023. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and at your local comic shop and bookstore. It will retail for $29.99.
