“To those who betrayed me, who stole everything from me, I will give death and despair unto death. Your wives and children, your loyal followers, one by one they will fall to my charms.”

While vacationing on the moon, Albert, a young Parisian nobleman, meets the Count of Monte Cristo, a fabulously rich aristocrat from the far reaches of the galaxy. Fascinated by the count’s sophistication and intelligence, Albert is unaware of the older man’s dark purpose: to enact revenge for a terrible act of betrayal committed against him twenty-five years ago. Soon, all of Paris, including Albert’s own mother and father, will feel the terror of the count’s vengeance.

Based on the acclaimed anime, this science fiction version of Alexandre Dumas’s classic The Count of Monte Cristo is the story of a young man’s seduction by evil–and a grown man’s struggle with his past.

I'd been wanting to see the anime version of this, but when an opportunity to pick up the manga version presented itself, I grabbed it. After all, it would give me a look at exactly how this adaptation of "The Count of Monte Cristo" was going to go, and I've often loved both the anime and manga vers...

Well, this was slightly different than the anime was. It wasn't a bad read but... there are some minor details about the manga that got to me. Not too big. I first decided to read this manga right after I finished watching the anime. I thought the anime was brilliant! It was definitely unique and se...
