More About Rohan at the Louvre by Hirohiko Araki
 
 
 
Overview
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."

A departure from the typical shonen or shojo manga styles, this weird fantasy tale from the creator of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure tells of a young man’s encounter with a mysterious divorcée who moves into his grandmother’s boarding house and how that meeting returns to haunt him a decade later. During his teens, Rohan aspires to be a manga artist, and his fledgling efforts attract the attention of the beautiful, apparently emotionally disturbed boarder, who tells him of the darkest, most evil painting ever crafted. She violently destroys his first completed work, a story featuring her image as its female lead, and disappears, leaving behind several unanswered questions. Ten years later, Rohan visits the Louvre and discovers the mysterious evil painting is housed in one of the museum’s closed wings, after which Stygian horror ensues. Looking like the work of a Japanese P. Craig Russell, Araki’s art lends a wistful mood to the tale’s proceedings and arrests the eye with willowy figures and expressive faces. Previous volumes of this graphic novel series published by the Louvre itself have all been excellent, and this is no exception. (Apr.)
