Titan Manga announce I.L by Osamu Tezuka

Written by Ross Locksley on 24 May 2024



Manga master Osamu Tezuka's I.L. (pronounced Aye-El) will be released by Titan Manga in October. Originally released in Japan in 1969, running in Big Comic until 1970. 

Synopsis:
Readers are thrown into the life of Imari Daisaku, a filmmaker whose fanciful creations have fallen of favor in a society dominated by scientific triumphs. However, his life changes forever when he encounters a peculiar group led by Count Alucard, and he receives an extraordinary gift; I.L, a mysterious mannequin with the power of shapeshifting.

Together, Daisaku and I.L utilize the phenomenal transformative abilities to help those in need and are propelled into an array of thrilling and haphazard adventures.

Each chapter unveils a new client seeking I.L’s unique services, as the protagonists find themselves in an array of scenarios ranging from domestic strife to political unrest. Not only does the reader accompany the duo on these haphazard missions, but they are given an insight into Daisaku’s internal conflict, caused by walking the tightrope between reality and fantasy.
