Manga slated to ship late this month

Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo revealed on Friday that it has licensed Naoki Urasawa's Mujirushi - Le signe des rêves manga and will release the manga this month under its Level Comics label.

Viz Media is releasing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

From award-winning author Naoki Urasawa comes a tale of crushing debt, a broken marriage, and the painting that can fix it all—if Kasumi and her dad can manage to steal it. Kamoda will do anything to earn a quick buck, even if it means skipping out on his taxes to take his wife on a luxury cruise. But when a random tax audit bankrupts his family, Kamoda soon discovers his wife has taken that cruise after all—only without Kamoda or their daughter Kasumi. Desperate to provide, Kamoda invests in a scheme to mass-produce masks of controversial American presidential candidate Beverly Duncan. But a lackluster election kills their sales potential, burying Kamoda under a mountain of masks and debt. On the verge of despair, Kamoda discovers a sign that leads him to the Director, an art fanatic who vows he can make all of Kamoda and Kasumi's dreams come true.

The manga mini-series is a collaboration project with Paris' Louvre Museum, and launched in Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine in October 2017. The manga ended in February 2018. Shogakukan released the manga's one compiled book volume in June 2018.

Elex Media has previously released Urasawa's 20th Century Boys and 21st Century Boys manga.
