9781561636150: Rohan at the Louvre (Louvre Collection)

By the bestselling author of JoJo's Bizare Adventure. Stunning illustrations depict an original fantasy story in this captivating graphic novel. As Rohan, a young Japanese manga artist, is drawing, he meets a mysterious, beautiful woman who tells him of a cursed 200-year-old painting. The painting was created using the blackest ink ever known, which came from a 1,000-year-old tree that the painter had cut down without the approval of the Emperor. The painter was executed for this, but the painting was saved from destruction by a curator of the Louvre. A decade later, Rohan visits Paris and asks the museum to unearth the painting from deep within its archives—but he is completely unprepared for the power of the curse he has unleashed.

About the Author:

Hirohiko Araki is a manga artist and the author of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series and the Steel Ball Run series, both of which have been serialized in the popular weekly magazine Shonen Jump.

Review:

"Mischievous humor. A great find."  —Library Journal on the previous books in the series

"A great story of a hearing-impaired young man trying to find his way."  —Miami Herald on the previous books in the series

"It's a straightforward, beautifully drawn, and delicately colored tale, filled with emotional bursts, sudden death, and the scent of eternity. It's also a great deal of fun." —Foreword (June 2012)

"Wondrous insanity." —www.TCJ.com (The Comics Journal)

"A must read! With its attention to the artistic process and the almost INDIANA JONESesque mystery of an ancient relic, mixed with a little bit of Japanese fairy tale whimsy, Rohan at the Louvre is a truly unique reading experience." —www.AintItCool.com

"The previous . . . title in the Louvre's distinguished graphic novel series, The Sky Over the Louvre, set an even higher standard than the first three high quality titles, and Araki's gorgeous ghost story easily matches them all for plot, drawing chops and emotional gut-punch. This excellent volume is recommended for fans of extreme manga artishness and for horror otaku." —Library Journal (May 2012)

"Araki's book will be relished by readers who are fans of the manga format, especially those interested in art." —VOYA magazine

"Published in a large hardcover format this unique title should find an audience. Should be popular with manga fans." —School Library Journal (July 2012)
