"[A] thrilling action series. . . . With good-looking characters and striking supernatural action sequences, this is the real world meets hyper-cool." —SLJ

When Cadis Etrama Di Raizel or Rai, as he is known, awakens after 820 years, he discovers a modern world he simply doesn't understand. Once an extremely powerful member of the Nobles, a race of nearly immortal and powerful creatures, Rai decides to start again as a high school student at Ye Ran High School, founded by his former servant Frankenstein, who is somehow still alive after all these centuries. Frankenstein’s goal—to help his powerful, vampire-like master learn about human life and culture as he protects him from the modern forces Rai cannot fathom.

Rai's somewhat peaceful new life is about to be disturbed by The Union, a secret organization interested in using his powers to further their own malicious goals.

When past clashes with present in this innovative take on familiar dark fantasy tropes, Rai must do everything in his power to ensure the Union doesn’t control his destiny, and that he can continue to integrate himself into this new, confusing modern world . . .

Noblesse is a global sensation, with over 5 billion reads on WEBTOON.

Volume 1 collects Season One, Part One of the global hit WEBTOON series.

WEBTOON IS POPPING OFF WITH THESE GRAPHIC NOVELS! Noblesse stole my heart on my WEBTOON app and now it is being printed just to hop onto my bookshelf. I am so excited to eat only PB&Js for a while after all these book-shopping trips I am going to go on. I love me a modern-day vampire man. Especially these ones. TOP TIER STORYTELLING. Also, the anime is good too.

The moment I finished Noblesse Volume 1, I immediately rewatched the anime. This is a vampire story with a loyal servant named Frankenstein, ability driven enemy vampires, and high school students. Anyone whose a fan of the Webtoons, or has watched the anime, needs to pick up this physical/digital copy. The characters are unique (my personal favourite being M21 *swoon), serious, and drawn in a simple yet expressive way. Remember that this isn’t a manga, so don’t read right to left.

I love to see Webtoons/webcomics getting published "traditionally". Really excited for this author/illustrator and the avenues it will open up for them! I enjoyed this a lot as a webcomic and I enjoyed it in it's graphic novel form, too. I always worry that certain things that are cool in the webcomic (that you, like, website-style scroll through) won't translate well into a print medium but this seemed to work well and I didn't find my enjoyment hindered at all because of the change in format!
