'Beauty and the Beast: Beast'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 this part being told from Beast's perspective.
Of the two volumes in the series, this is the more interesting one, since the movie mostly follows Belle's perspective. There is a bit of liberty with the story here and how the Beast got to be the way he is. The story overlaps with Belle's, but from the Beast's point of view, so you get his inner thoughts.
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.
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.
