Series has been on and off hiatus for 3 months since author's surgery

Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday announced on Wednesday that Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan (Case Closed) manga will resume publication in this year's 34th issue on July 22. The magazine said this is the end of the three-month period of irregular serialization.

The manga has been on and off hiatus since Aoyama announced in March that he had gone to the hospital for surgery. He assured his fans that the surgery went as planned without incident, but noted that he would be staying in the hospital for a little while longer, until this summer.

The series went on hiatus in the 19th issue on April 8. Aoyama then resumed the series on May 13 with Shonen Sunday's 24th issue, but put it on hiatus again after the 27th issue. Shonen Sunday has been running Meitantei Conan Fukkoku Rensai Series (Detective Conan Reissue Serialization Series) in place of new chapters.

Aoyama launched his manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 1994, and the manga inspired a popular ongoing television anime series in 1996. The manga also inspired a series of annual anime films, and the 19th film, titled Detective Conan: Gōka no Himawari (Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno), opened in Japan on April 18.

Viz Media publishes the manga in North America.
