The America-based online bookstore Glacier Bay Books has announced that it will release an English edition of Arata Imai’s F manga. The manga was released in Japan in 2015 under the title I Am John Cantlie.
Comics historian and translator Ryan Holmberg is translating the manga, and will also provide an essay to accompany and contextualize the manga.
Holmberg stated the manga had 200 self-published copies that sold at avant-garde art exhibitions in Japan, but did not have distribution in Japan outside of that. He added he had been looking “for years … for a collaborator to publish [the manga] in English.”
Glacier Bay Books will publish the manga in 2021.
