The 25th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine has confirmed on Thursday that Kaiji Kawaguchi's Zipang manga will resume in the next issue on May 28, after Kawaguchi's recovery from a bicycle accident. Zipang has been on hiatus for most of this month since Kawaguchi fractured his right arm — which is his drawing arm — on April 14 while getting lunch in the rain. Kawaguchi announced the hiatus in the 23rd issue, which included a sketch of the Zipang character Yosuke Kadomatsu (shown at right) that Kawaguchi drew with his left arm.
Before Zipang, Kawaguchi drew the Eisner Award-nominated Eagle manga, The Silent Service, and A Spirit of the Sun. Viz published the Eagle manga in North America, Central Park Media released the Silent Service anime special, and Geneon Entertainment (USA) released the Zipang television anime.
