I’m not normally an advocate for scanlation, but this special edition of Big Comic is testing my resolve! Short stories by Naoki Ursawa, Moto Hagio, and Junji Ito?! Yes, please!
Two months ahead of Hollywood’s new Godzilla remake, Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki’s short story Kaijû Ôkoku, starring a Godzilla-like monster (in a humoristic tribute to the kaijû-genre), got re-released into a collection. It was previously published in the Big Comic magazine in August 2013.
This volume, published on February 28th, contains other short stories made by famous mangakas (Junji Ito, Moto Hagio…), which also got published in the Big Comic to celebrate the magazine’s 45th birthday. A second volume will be released on March 28th, featuring stories by Rumiko Takahashi and Shigeru Mizuki.
