The next-issue preview for Shueisha's You magazine has announced that its September issue will feature a new manga series by Moto Hagio titled Ōhi Marugo (Queen Margot). The title takes place in 16th-century France and tells the story of the historical Queen Margaret. The Japanese title of the series is identical to the title of the 1845 novel by Alexandre Dumas.
The September issue of You will be released on August 11. Queen Margot's first chapter will be 46 pages long and include color pages.
A number of titles by Hagio have been or will be released in English, such as the Fantagraphics editions of Heart of Thomas (Thomas no Shinzō) and A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. Earlier this year, the Japanese government awarded Hagio the Medal With Purple Ribbon, which honors academic and artistic achievement.
