1st 2 volumes shipping in September

North American publisher Viz Media announced on Friday that it will debut the first two volumes of One-Punch Man in print this September. Future volumes will be published bimonthly.

Viz Media already has seven volumes of One-Punch Man available digitally. The series is also currently serialized in Viz Media's English-language digital edition of Weekly Shonen Jump. The English version of One-Punch Man was nominated for an Eisner Award this year.

Yuusuke Murata's manga series adapts ONE's original web manga of the same name. Murata's manga is currently running on Shueisha's free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website.

The series revolves around the titular super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.

An anime adaptation starring Makoto Furukawa as Saitama has been green-lit.
