Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi’s new manga, THE COMIQ, is here! Today, VIZ Media begins simulpubbing this limited series in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.

THE COMIQ tells the story of Ryota Sakamaki, a rookie manga creator who just debuted his first title, Pendulum of Love. With the help of his editor, Sakamaki employs an assistant to help him draw his manga’s background art — an assistant that he has never seen or met. When Pendulum of Love catches the eye of a police detective, Sakamaki realizes that his assistant’s background art is hiding a bloody secret…

“For the 50th anniversary of Shonen Jump, I created something with the theme of ‘manga.’ I’d be ecstatic if you give it a chance!” says Takahashi in the magazine’s author comments section.

If you love Takahashi’s work, then give this murder mystery manga a shot! And if you enjoy THE COMIQ, please vote for it each week in VIZ’s WSJ survey. If enough people like it, maybe the chapters will eventually be compiled and sold as a graphic novel.

  1. I just finished reading this week’s chapter. The COMIQ is so good! I’m glad for Kazuki Takahashi to have another opportunity to publish a new series with a different genre apart from his other works. I’m not an expert reviewer for stories, but so far Kazuki Takahashi has me on the edge of my seat. He has the potential to write amazing mystery stories. Can’t wait to read chapter 2.

  2. This story has very good reread potential. After reading through chapter 1, I’m having fun going back and looking at the background art to search for clues. I’m very excited to learn how they figure out the mystery.
