Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump, Shueisha's male-targeted magazine known for serializing some of the industry's most popular manga series. Artwork spanning the magazine's launch to the 1980s will go on display on July 18 and run until October 15 at the Tokyo Mori Arts Center Gallery.

    A total of 63 works are planned for the exhibition. Visitors can get a Shonen Jump cover sticker, which, like the name implies, is a sticker featuring a cover of the magazine. Advance tickets will also feature the magazine cover images and go on sale on May 13. A pin set of the cover images will also go on sale.

    The exhibition will have three parts. The second part will open next spring and focus on the magazine's surge in the 1990s followed by the third part next summer covering the 2000s.
