2nd book by shōjo pioneer from N. American publisher to ship in December

The North American publisher Fantagraphics Books has posted a 23-page excerpt from its upcoming release of Moto Hagio's Heart of Thomas (Thomas no Shinzō) manga.

Veteran translator Matt Thorn will edit and translate the 1974 title, just as he did for Fantagraphics' 2010 release of Hagio's A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. The story follows the protagonist Juli at a boys' boarding school in Germany after the death of a 14-year-old friend named Thomas one winter morning.

Fantagraphics plans to ship the 568-page hardcover book in December for US$39.99.
