Ize Press has licensed Finding Camellia,
a fantasy romance webtoon that currently runs in English on the subscription site Manta. At 12 years old, Camellia is forced to take on the identity of Camellius Bale, a young man from an aristocratic family, and the story follows her efforts to free herself from the tangle of lies in which she is enmeshed. As Camellia comes of age, she must fight to establish her own identity on her own terms, while also contending with a complicated romantic life. The story is adapted from a novel (also available in English on Manta) by Jin Soye; the adaptation was done by Bokyung Kong and the art is by Seureureuk Comics. The publication date and MSRP will be announced later.
