Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manhwa webtoon series A Stepmother’s Märchen by Spice&kitty and ORKA, a full-color fantasy comic of romance, drama, and second chances. Also known in English as The Fantasie of a Stepmother on the Tapas Media digital platform, this is the story of a beleaguered young noblewoman raising her stepchildren on her own…until she dies and wakes up in the past with the chance to remake her life!
The marchioness Shuri Von Neuschwanstein is no stranger to hardship: her husband dies when she’s still a teenager, leaving her to manage his lands and raise his semi-grown children herself. Her stepchildren never warm up to her, and other nobles disparage her behind her back. Years later, however, it seems her efforts have finally paid off: her eldest stepson is to be married and take over the estate, freeing her of many responsibilities. But shortly after learning the cruel truth that she’s not invited to his wedding, she dies and wakes up on the day of her husband’s funeral seven years earlier! If Shuri is to live these seven difficult years all over again, she’s going to do things differently. Can she write her own fairy tale ending this time around?
A Stepmother’s Märchen Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in print in North America in August 2023 for $19.99 USA / $26.99 CAN, with the series available in single large-trim paperback editions.
