Official Press Release
VARIANTE VOL. 1, the debut volume of the new horror series from CMX by writer/artist Iqura Sugimoto, will be solicited in the July Previews with a special sales incentive. Qualifying retailers may make full returns on this title at a date to be named later.
In this volume, a murderous entity controls the arm of an innocent girl. After seeing her family slaughtered, Aiko is surprised to wake up on a laboratory table, apparently intact. But when she notices the horribly disfigured arm grafted onto her body, she soon realizes that life as she knew it before the attack is now over. Infused with the DNA of a mysterious monster known as Chimera, the arm acts on the urges of its master – leaving Aiko powerless to stop it. Alone and frightened, how will she deal with this horrible fate?
With chilling artwork and an exciting storyline, VARIANTE is a gritty and compelling drama. This is a powerful new chapter for the CMX manga line that no one will want to miss. VARIANTE will be published in CMX’s new mature readers format of 5.5″ by 8″.
