Just a stone's throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom and its master, one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria's faithful servant...and a slip of a twelve-year-old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master's wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London's underbelly, there apparently is nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true...or at least, too good to be human...

Black Butler volume 1 introduces Ciel Phantomhive a 12 year old Earl who lives in the Victorian era of England. Ciel is the fateful watch dog for Queen of England, he watches over the underground world of England’s mysteries and murders. Along with Ciel his servants are introduced, a cook who burns everything he cooks, a gardener that wrecks the gardens, a clumsy maid, and a silent butler. Yet more importantly Sebastian Michaelis, a demon who is “simply one hell of a butler” is introduced. Black Butler is a story for those who like outrageous silly humor and can handle darker themes.

Really good art. Dark story line, but if you don't mind that sort of thing, very recommended.
