Vertical announced during its panel at the Anime NYC convention on Sunday that it will release Tsutomu Nihei's APOSIMZ manga in print starting next Fall. Vertical is releasing the manga digitally via Comixology, and it describes the story:

A land of endless icy expanses, ancient ruins that fill abysses that know no end, and the looming shadow of the Empire. In this danger-filled land of eternal winter, a journey of adventure and battle has already begun.

Nihei launched the manga under the title Ningyō no Kuni in Kodansha's Shonen Sirius magazine on February 25. Kodansha published the manga's first compiled book volume in Japan on May 9.

The title APOSIMZ shares a name with a minor story element in Nihei's earlier Knights of Sidonia manga. In the story, the Aposimz was one of only two named "seed ships" (the other being the titular Sidonia) that escaped the Gauna's destruction of Earth. The paths of the two ships are already light years apart in the beginning of the story, and the ships' survival is left in doubt.
