Ah, well... I'm not even sure what to say about this.
Innocent is beautifully drawn, but strangely told.
All the scenes are very dramatic, even overtly so.
There are no "everyday" or "simple" moments, only epic and grandiose.
The pages have few panels and the close-ups are extreme in every way.

As for the plot, I'm not sure how well researched it is. I mean, I'm all for gay protagonists in unusual settings like this, but where is it documented? Who was that Jean de Chartois? Was he a real person? Was he based on a real person? Is it mentioned anywhere that Charles Henry Sanson had homosexual inclinations? I'd like to do some further reading into the subject, but the manga has all kinds of inaccuracies sprinkled about.
Same goes for all the other secondary characters. I'm not saying authors can't take creative liberties with their works, but some of the scenes seem to come from nowhere.
I also wonder about the botched executions. Did that really happen? And did they really give a child of 14 (or however old he was, because you simply can't tell in this manga) the job of chopping heads and tying nooses? I'm also very surprised about the attire which was chosen for the job. That, and the fact that they didn't cover their faces. It's common knowledge that executioners were well despised back then, hence the hoodies and secrecy, but it seems that there's not such thing in the Sanson family, who proudly embraced their grim family business.


Regardless, I'm interested in reading on and seeing how it develops.

Especially if Charles Henry gets more face time with some other boy/man.

I've read all existing chapters in a gulp, and realized I'm now hooked.
The manga is so beautifully drawn, that some panels made me "lick the screen" smile
The story is developing nicely, captivating the reader and sending him in France of the XVIII century.
Please give the serie a try, it's a interesting read.
