Shogakukan revealed on Wednesday that Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan manga will return from its hiatus on November 29 in Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine's 1st 2018 issue. The magazine's 45th issue had revealed in October that the manga would take a break from issues 46-48 so Aoyama could conduct research. The manga was originally planned to resume in the 49th issue, which shipped on Wednesday.
The 1st 2018 issue will publish the second chapter in the manga's new arc.
The manga series centers on Conan Edogawa, the alias of detective Shinichi Kudo, whose body shrunk after being poisoned at the beginning of the story. Together with detective Kogoro Mori and his daughter Ran, Conan helps the police solve difficult mysteries.
Detective Conan has been running since 1994 and in August it became the first Weekly Shonen Sunday series to publish its 1,000th chapter. The manga has spawned an ongoing anime series, and a yearly anime film series. The 21st film in the series, Meitantei Conan Kara Kurenai no Love Letter (Detective Conan: Crimson Love Letter), opened on April 15, and earned the highest opening weekend record for the franchise. Aoyama's various manga series have a combined 200 million copies in print worldwide.
