Tanpopo GN2 – Such Devilish Things Contest


Tanpopo Graphic Novel Volume 2 is coming to The Camilla Store, Amazon, and book and comic shops near you! Official release date is slated for May 28, copies will be available on The Camilla Store here.

Tanpopo is Camilla’s passion project, combining her love for classic literature, manga & storytelling, with her own characters and narratives.  Graphic Novel 2, containing installments 4 & 5, continue Tanpopo’s journey to discover what it means to be human, guided by Kuro, the devil in disguise.

Tanpopo GN2 Pic

A fresh wound of the heart is torn open by the unmasking of Kuro’s deadly deception with Ni. His lessons in human emotion push Tanpopo to the limits of her resolve. Is this part of his plan as her otherworldly guide or has he underestimated Tanpopo’s dogged independence?

Following Tanpopo Volume 1, Volume 2 continues Tanpopo’s journey into human emotion through classic literary works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and 1001 Arabian Nights.

Tanpopo GN2 Page



Camilla received a very few advanced copies of Tanpopo GN2 for her Spectrum Fantastic Art Live showing this month. She held back a small handful of copies, signed and did original Tanpopo sketches inside to send to The Camilla Store team.


Kuro wants to know, what Devilish thing would you do to get your hands on a signed advanced copy of Tanpopo GN2 with an original sketch inside? Replace every Yahoo Answer with cryptic hieroglyphs? Fill Old Faithful with cream soda? Fake spiders in the cookie jar that come to life if anyone but you tries to sneak one?

Tell Kuro! He’s listening through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram. Tell him what your Devilish Deed is and tag it #TanpopoAndKuro #DevilishThingsContest

On Friday May 23rd by the time the clock strikes Midnight, he will chose his favourite Devilish thing of them all, and see an advanced copy of Tanpopo GN2 with an original sketch inside spirited your way.

Let the games begin!
Let the games begin!

Thanks For A Fantastic SFAL!

We’re so grateful for those that were able to help fund the hardcover project, and we’re proud to announce that the book is now available for comic shops to order from BOOM! Studios.

News of the book’s release into the comic market was featured on sites like CBR, comics-x-aminerBrokenFrontier, and Comicosity to the Brooklyn blog AlternativeMindz, PopDecay, TheOuthouse, and the awesome Tumblr page Ladies Making Comics. The hardcover edition of Tanpopo could be in stores as soon as March, which means Kickstarter funders should be getting their rewards in just a couple months!
