Can a boy named Lucille defeat the dolls of the living dead?!
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) T+ audience.
Lucille is loving heading up the traveling Royal Orchestra roving from town to town entertaining the masses and making money. But now he and his Orchestra have met their match: people infected with the Guignol Virus, turnings them into zombie dolls intent on killing all humans!
Now that Lucille and the musicians know what they are up against (the zombie-esque Guignols!), they have to figure out how to stop them! Kaori Yuki's new epic adventure offers up not one but two new storylines to savor with "The Queen and the Jester" and the title story, "Tragédie Lyrique." Is the orchestra any closer to stopping the Guignol infestation?
