Asian Horror Month: The Earl and the Fairy Manga

The Earl & the Fairy
by Mizue Tan, illustrated by Asako Takaboshi

In 19th century London, a man is beaten almost to death by a criminal. Meanwhile, Lydia, the last fairy doctor receives a letter from her father to come to London to see him. As Lydia boards the boat, she is kidnapped then later kidnapped again… But which man means her harm?

Can she escape from a pretend Edgar Earl and find safety with her father in London? Or is the fake Earl no fake at all? Does he truly need her help as a fairy doctor to find his fairy legacy? And will her fairy
friend Nico (who looks like a cat) be able to assist in finding the fairy sword?

This was an enjoyable manga that reminded me of Jack the Ripper but it’s slanted much more mystery than horror. However, it was interesting and I liked that some of the story took place on boats. Also loved soaking in the 19th century feel.
