Welcome!

   Recently, many people have become rather enamored of Harlequin comics.
   For those unfamiliar with them, here is a brief explanation of just what exactly Harlequin is.


What is "Harlequin"?

   Quite simply, "Harlequin" is the name of a publishing company.
   However, it was originally the name for a trickster in French plays dating back as far as the 11th Century. Over time, this trickster developed into a romantic hero (though he didn't lose his mischievous ways!).

   As such, the books published by Harlequin are romantic in nature. They have sold over six billion titles in total, making them one of the world's leading publishers of romance.

   Harlequin novels are now available in comic format, complete with gorgeous characters and dramatic scenes, thanks to Japanese manga artists.

  • Do you want to experience a breathtaking romance?

   If you answered yes to any of the above, then without doubt, you'll enjoy Harlequin comics!
   Each story follows a particular pattern, which is explained below.

     Despite all the trials and misunderstandings and heartbreak, there will always be a happy ending.

     Harlequin plots vary greatly. One of the most popular is the "Cinderella story." A young woman meets a rich and handsome man who offers to pay off her debts in exchange for her hand in marriage. But what begins as a marriage in name only, devoid of love, soon turns fiery hot as the young couple get to know each other and their passions explode.

     Just as sought after is the "secret baby" story, in which the heroine must raise the hero's child without his knowledge after they've tragically separated.

     Whatever mood you are in, we have a story for you. Playboys, sheikhs and noblemen abound in our comics. Some stories are tales of destiny and others revolve around tricks of fate. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they are enchanting epics of love.

ANNIE, GET YOUR GUY

     Like our heroes, the heroines of Harlequin stories are always beautiful, even if they don't realize it and start out as an "ugly duckling" or shy and awkward.

     They're kind with warm hearts and, generally, aren't accustomed to love and romance. Some have zero experience with men, while others are divorced or single mothers. All of them are just waiting for the right guy to come along and bring them out of their shells.

     As Harlequin stories are about love and aimed at adult women, there are often some mild sex scenes. They usually go further than a kiss, but are rarely explicit. Steamy encounters aren't the main focus of Harlequin comics. Instead, these scenes are sensual and sophisticated, leaving the rest to the imagination.

     Harlequin stories are set all over the world. Some are situated in modern-day America, England or Australia. Others are set in exotic locales, such as Greece, Arabian Peninsula or France and feature enigmatic tycoons, mysterious sheikhs or jet-setting playboys. We even have tales set in historical eras, such as Regency London, the rugged Highlands of Scotland, the Wild West frontier of America or the wintry, storm-lashed coasts of Viking Scandinavia.

     Harlequin comics are stand-alones, meaning each story is only one volume long. In a few cases where the story is longer, it might be divided into two or more volumes.

     We also feature series, where each volume within a series can be read separately but if all the volumes are read, a larger, connected story reveals itself. If, for example, a series is called The Crane Brothers, each volume will concern a different brother's romance, and you will not need to have read the first one to understand the last.
