This is great news. I cannot wait to pledge on Kickstarter this title. I wish them great success and I hope they will bring over more Tezuka short story collections. I am a little disappointed at the high cost, but artwork and hardcovering are very nice.

The most interesting bit of this article is that this completely new publishing company was able to wrestle the license rights from Akita Shoten, whom have refused to work with NA publishers for some time now.

Edit: Nevermind; had a momentary lapse in thought, since Tezuka manga licenses work differently in Japan.

Our singular goal is to expose the American public to classic, obscure, rare, visually pleasing, emotionally taxing and often archaic Japanese Manga that have never before been published in English.

That's well and good, but isn't that kind of lost when the print is limited and will only be bought by people who have the money to donate/support the kickstarter or are already Tezuka aficionados? At least save a couple copies for some libraries...
