The North American publisher Fantagraphics Books confirmed on Wednesday that it will release the Heart of Thomas (Thomas no Shinzō) manga by Moto Hagio next August. Veteran translator Matt Thorn will edit and translate the 1974 title, just as he did for last year's Fantagraphics release of Hagio's A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. The story follows the protagonist Juli after the death of a friend named Thomas one winter morning.

Fantagraphics' US$35.000 release will be hardcover with 480 8" x 10" pages.

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
