Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of Hachijou Shin’s on-going shoujo manga series, Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf.
Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf is a cheeky take on the Red Riding Hood story for fans of Alice in the Country of… and Dictatorial Grimoire, and includes plenty of familiar faces from Grimm fairy tales. This clever reinvention of the classic tale reverses the roles of the original, giving readers a lovable, cry-baby Wolf and an outgoing Red Riding Hood who just can’t help but want to tease him.
Once upon a time there lived a kind, sensitive Wolf. He loved the warm sun, the beautiful flowers, and the song of the birds. But one day the Wolf encountered a girl in a red hood. She delighted in making the Wolf cry, and immediately fell in love with his sorrowful face. Now she brings her colorful friends to torment him every day! What is the story behind all the strange characters populating the deep dark wood, and what is a big, sad wolf to do?
Seven Seas will present Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf for the first time in print in North America as single volume editions. Each volume will include at least one full-color illustration. Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf Vol. 1 will be released on June 13, 2017 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
