posted on 2007-12-11 14:55 EST
To promote the inaugural issues of Jump Square, the replacement magazine for the defunct Monthly Shonen Jump, Shueisha announced that Gintama artist Hideaki Sorachi will create a one-installment manga short in an upcoming issue. Sorachi's manga short will be part of Jump Square's fourth wave of standalone stories by famous manga creators. The other creators have included Masanori Morita (Rokudenashi Blues) and Takeshi Obata (Hikaru no Go, Death Note).
In related news, Jump Square announced that it is publishing a second print run of 60,000 copies for its second issue (pictured at right). The second issue's first print run shipped on December 4. This follows the trend of the first issue, for which Shueisha published a second print run of 100,000 copies when its first 500,000-copy print run began selling out.
