Kore Vol. 1: Lost in Abaddon
When down-on-his-luck slacker Alex Crane decides to steal ancient relics from his local museum to pay off gambling debts, he suddenly finds himself on the run from powerful magical forces.
Transformed into the monstrous Mantikore, Alex is taken to Abaddon, a fantasy world where magic has run dry, and elves, dwarves, fairies and goblins live in a modern society. There, Alex must quickly acclimate himself to his environment, or fall prey to the wizard who wants his powers.
