(LOS ANGELES, January 5, 2022) – Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the print license acquisition of three blockbuster webtoons from Korean webtoon platform Lezhin Comics: the Boys’ Love horror Killing Stalking by Koogi, the Boys’ Love omegaverse romance Love is an Illusion! by Fargo, and the Girls’ Love/yuri dramatic romance PULSE by Ratana Satis. Seven Seas will release new English-language print editions of all three Mature-rated comics in retailers across the world.
Killing Stalking: Yoon Bum, a scrawny and quiet man, has a crush on one of the most popular and handsome guys in his college: Sangwoo. After the two cross paths again during their military training, Yoon Bum’s feelings grow in intensity until they become an obsession–and he breaks into Sangwoo’s home. But what he sees inside is not the Sangwoo of his fantasies; his dreams of this alluring man abruptly turn into a nightmare. This wildly popular BL horror manhwa webtoon is the grand prize winner of the 2nd Lezhin Comics World Comic Contest, and has been published in numerous languages since its 2016 debut, winning critical praise across the globe. Now readers can own this full-color, deluxe paperback edition in English for the first time, with a special fold-out insert included in every volume!
Love is an Illusion!: Hye-sung spent his entire life believing he was an Alpha, the jackpot of the genetic lottery. But his world is flipped upside down when he finds out he isn’t a dominating Alpha, but a submissive Omega. His frustration is pushed to its limits when he constantly crosses paths with the handsome Dojin, a true Alpha. Dojin supposedly can’t stand Omegas, but his head-butting with Hye-sung results in explosive arguments and unexpected sex. Is this sizzling chemistry truly just their bodies reacting? Take a step into the omegaverse with this fiery Boys’ Love manhwa webtoon! This global digital hit is coming to print at last in deluxe English-language paperbacks, featuring the black-and-white comic with beautiful color inserts.
PULSE: Mel, a renowned heart surgeon, is well-known for being a stoic loner. She views her erotic flings with other women as a tool for pleasure rather than a show of affection. When she delivers bad news to patients’ families, her cold nature can make her seem heartless. Then she meets Lynn, a beautiful and spirited cardiac patient who needs a new heart, but refuses a transplant. The two women meet with minimal expectations but soon become enthralled in a relationship that changes everything for them both. This Girls’ Love comic–and first place winner of the 2nd Lezhin Comics World Comic Contest–is one of the most popular series by fan-favorite Thai creator Ratana Satis, also known for Soul Drifters and Lily Love. Now you can own this full-color yuri webtoon hit in a beautiful new paperback collection!
