Overlord, Vol. 1 - manga (Overlord Manga)
1 journaler for this copy...
While the artwork is good and the premise interesting, I admit I didn't get terribly caught up in this volume - possibly due to the amount of setup that's needed here. Towards the end, new characters and settings pop in, suggesting a more interesting story-arc. That said, there are so many characters introduced here already that it's tough to keep them straight - and I found the main character less interesting than some of the supporting ones. Still, he looks pretty badass in his full skeletal-overlord mode!
[There's a TV Tropes page on the various forms of the story. And there's a 2015 anime adaptation.]
