Big Comic Superior Launches New Manga from Inio Asano, Shuzo Oshimi
Seinen magazine Big Comic Superior is about to launch a first: manga creators Inio Asano (Goodbye Punpun) and Shuzo Oshimi (Flowers of Evil) will be syndicated together in a publication for the first time ever.
Asano’s new series, Reiraku (Downfall, left), will premiere in the magazine’s seventh issue next month. Oshimi’s new manga is titled Chi no Wadachi (Furrow of Blood) and premieres this month in issue 6.
The tag for Chi no Wadachi is “The vision of that person leads me astray… Mother and son… that is the ultimate favoritism.” As for Reiraku, it is “a depiction of one worn-out manga artist’s soul adrift.”
Issue 6 of Big Comic Superior hits newsstands February 24, and its seventh issues will be available March 10.
