New series is one of six planned in Big Comic magazine

The official website for Shogakukan's Big Comic, Big Comic Original, and Big Comic Superior magazines announced that manga creator Go Nagai (Mazinger Z, Getter Robo, Cutey Honey) will launch the Devilman Saga manga in Big Comic's first 2015 issue on December 25.

Nagai ended his Devilman G manga with Rui Takatō and the last compiled volume shipped in February. He also ended his Cutey Honey vs Devilman Lady spinoff manga last year and "Team Moon" ended its Devilman vs. Hades (Devilman tai Yami no Teiō) manga series in Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine in July.

Nagai is currently serializing Shin Mazinger Zero vs Ankoku Daishougun with artists Yoshiaki Tabata and Yuuki Yugo and his own Grendizer Giga series in Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine. Nagai launched the autobiographical manga Gekiman! ~Mazinger Z no Shō~ (Gekiman!: Mazinger Z Chapter) in Nihonbungeisha's Weekly Manga Goraku in August. The autobiographical manga reveals the untold story of the creation of Nagai's Mazinger Z manga.
