Short Stories and Ships: PictureBox Announces New Manga for Fall

This news was missed here back in April but better late than never! In early April, Picture Box Inc announced they’d acquired two more manga series for publication:

Gold Pollen and Other Stories – Seiichi Hayashi
World Map Room – Yūichi Yokoyama

Gold Pollen and Other Stories is a collection of short stories and will be released in full colour and hardcover. This book will be a part of a new imprint they’re calling ‘Masters of Alternative Manga’. The book is listed at $27.50/US. More information and preview pages are currently posted on Picture Box’s website.

World Map Room is a one shot title released as a black & white paperback for $17.95/US. You can read about the book and see preview pages for this book on Picture Box’s website as well.

Both books are scheduled to be released in Fall 2013.
