The Publishers Weekly trade magazine's PW Comics Week supplement reports from Comic-Con International that Last Gasp Publishing has licensed the Fancy Gigolo Pelu manga from artist Junko Mizuno. The three-volume manga will ship in North America in the spring of 2009. Last Gasp has already licensed the Pure Trance manga from Mizuno, who is best known for her deliberately grotesque yet cute illustrations.
Update: Patrick Macias notes that his jaPress studio will be producing the English version for Last Gasp, as it had for the Eisner-nominated Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms manga and Mizuno's Pure Trance.
