Fist of the North Star Manga Reprint to Add New Chapter
posted on by Egan Loo
Tokuma Shoten is republishing Buronson and Tetsuo Hara's Fist of the North Star manga in an "Ultimate Edition" that will include a new chapter. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the manga's original magazine launch, the Ultimate Edition will reissue the manga in 18 volumes, starting with two volumes on September 20. Hara is drawing exclusive new cover illustrations for this edition, and all of the color pages from the original magazine run will be reproduced.
In addition, the 11th Ultimate Edition volume will include a new chapter about Kenshirō and Black King a few years after Raoh's death.
Fans who collect a ticket from all 18 volumes will be able to receive a reprinted key illustration. Fans will be able to choose the illustration from one of five designs.
Buronson and Hara's original post-apocalyptic fighting manga first ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1983 to 1988.
