"It will include famous titles by superstars, as well as single-artist volumes and anthologies of comics by forgotten geniuses," wrote PictureBox on its blog.

The line will debut with Last of the Mohicans by Shigeru Sugiura, the "first book-length publication of Sugiura's work in English".

"The present volume is Sugiura's 1973-74 reworking of Mohicans in his new vibrant style," said the publisher.

"The book combines Sugiura's signature brand of absurd action and exquisite drawing, veering constantly from lowbrow cartoon spoof to nuanced meditation on American cultural influence."

The second volume will be Osamu Tezuka's 1948 work The Mysterious Underground Men, which will arrive in October.
