Described as “Beauty and the Beast but with mad science,” Blood Stain is a slice-of-life/comedy (and even a little mystery!) comic on Webtoons that takes the old tale of opposites attract into a new world of chemistry, growing up in a tough world, and finding friendships in unlikely places.
Created by sigeel (Linda Sejic), the web series centers on Elliot, an anxious chemistry student desperately in need of a job, especially when her family needs her most. Dr. Stein, a “sleep-deprived scientist” with a reputation for being a little mad, is in need of an assistant. Can the pair help each other and will their friendship be good or bad for both of them?
The series started as a webcomic and was then picked up by Top Cow a few years back. It is now back on Webtoons, with new updates appearing on the 20th of every month.
