Tanpopo is an ongoing comic book series by Canadian artist and illustrator Camilla d'Errico. A young girl, Tanpopo, lives her whole life isolated from humanity, hooked up to a machine. A devil, Kuro, comes to her and offers her a deal: In exchange for her soul, he will set her free and teach her what it means to be human.
The series is drawn in d'Errico's signature manga-esque style, with thin lines of stark ink and delicate splashes of colour. Most of the dialogue is taken from classical poetry; the first volume takes all its dialoge and narration from Goethe's Faust.
Tropes associated with Tanpopo:
- Deal with the Devil: The series kicks off its plot with this.
- Emotionless Girl: Tanpopo, the plot is her quest to experience human emotion.
