Avi Arad is working on a manga title.

The Innocent centres around a man who is wrongly executed and is sent back to Earth to redeem troubled humans.

The former chief creative officer of Marvel Entertainment is currently producing The Amazing Spider-Man for the company.

"I've been in the world of comics all my life, and specifically into Japanese comics in the early days, before manga attempted to penetrate this market," Arad told Graphic Novel Reporter.

"I wanted to do The Innocent for a long time ago. It stayed with me quite a while.

"Once I got out of Marvel Comics, it was one of the things on my bucket list to do a manga. I had an idea and I followed it, and here we are.

"I came to the United States in 1970 and it became one of the formats of comics that I really liked, but we couldn't get going here. US publishers have had a really hard time with publishing them.

"I've been involved with many publishers in Japan, and still am... and I thought, 'Let's give it a shot!'"
