IT TAKES A DEVIL TO KILL A DEVIL!
When Miki attempts to summon a demon on the roof of her high school, things don’t go quite as planned. Not only does she instigate a vicious massacre, but her friend Akira gets possessed by the legendary demon Amon the Uneater, who annihilates his own kind. As Tokyo’s streets grow bloodier by the day–thanks to invaders from Hell–a demonic demon slayer might be the city’s only hope for salvation.
A modern, ultra-violent spin on the devilish classic by Go Nagai!

Praise For Devilman Grimoire Vol. 1…
“[...] a horror/superhero fusion, about a boy whose secret identity is that of a brawny muscled devil-creature. In the TV series, Devilman is basically a hero who fights a different monster in every episode. But the manga version was something much more original, much more crazy, much more Nagai.” —Jason Thompson, Anime News Network
"...the art is very reminiscent of the original series without being a slave to recreating the 1970s, forming a nice mix of styles. Seven Seas' representative commented that this was a good entry to the Devilman franchise, and I'm inclined to agree with him – not only did the book leave me wanting volume two, but also curious to check out the original." —Rebecca Silverman, Anime News Network
