This is Yen Press's week to shine, with a very nice lineup of continuing series and two new ones. First up is the graphic adaptation of Gail Carriger's Soulless, the story of a Victorian vampire fighter, illustrated by the incomparable rem.

The other new series is vol. 1 of Is This a Zombie?, the story of a zombie high school boy who accidentally becomes a chainsaw-weilding magical girl.
