Tokyo Babylon-Book One *New*
The prequel to X.
. Tokyo Babylon is CLAMP's early epic of dangerous work--and dangerous attraction!
Glamour has two meanings: the modern one of style, and the ancient one of sorcery. Tokyo Babylon is the realm of both! It's 1991, the last days of Japan's bubble economy, and money and elegance run through the streets like rivers of neon. So do the currents of darkness beneath them- obsession, greed, and exploitation, nourishing evil spirits that only the arts of the onmyoji--Japan's legendary occultists- can combat. The two most powerful remaining onmyoji are in the unlikely guises of a handsome young
veterinarian, Seishiro, and the teenage heir to the ancient Sumeragi clan, Subaru--just a couple of guys whom Subaru's sister Hokuto has decided are destined to be a couple!
The prequel to CLAMP's apocalyptic X, Tokyo Babylon was one of the first BL (boys' love) manga to be published in the west. Dark Horse is proud to release Tokyo Babylon in omnibus form, with sixteen bonus illustrations in full color!
"Tokyo Babylon is CLAMP's first really great work."
