'Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Tale' by Mallory Reaves with art by Studio Dice is a manga version of the Disney movie. It is a 2-part series with the second part being told from Beast's perspective.
To those familiar with the Disney movie, this follows along fairly faithfully from the perspective of Belle. Her father gets captured by the Beast and Belle takes her place. Belle discovers the curse and slowly Belle and the Beast form a relationship.
The artists worked with the Disney team to get the characters close, and yet still give them a manga sensibility. This volume includes some character concepts and other sketch details at the end. There are a few added details, but this is pretty much a straightforward adaptation in Manga form.
I received a review copy of this manga from Tokyopop, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this manga.
