posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Manga creator Shiori Teshirogi revealed on her blog in February that the fourth compiled book volume of her Batman and the Justice League manga will be its last. Amazon is listing the volume as shipping in Japan on July 19.
From mangaka Shiori Teshirogi (Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas) comes a new series starring Batman and the Justice League. Currently being serialized in the monthly Japanese anthology Red [sic], the story focuses on a young boy who comes to Gotham City from Japan. He's trying to solve the mystery of what happened to his scientist parents after their disappearance following a factory explosion a year earlier. As it turns out, the factory was owned by Lex Luthor, who has now teamed with The Joker. Together, they plan on using the research of the boy's parents to tap into a mystical, all-powerful, worldwide energy source. But for what purpose? It's a bigger challenge than Batman can handle on his own, so he's going to need some help from the League.
Teshirogi launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine in June 2017. Akita Shoten published the manga's third compiled book volume in Japan on January 18. Teshirogi also published the "Justice League Origin: Wonder Woman" one-shot manga in July 2017.
Teshirogi's Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas - Meiō Shinwa manga ran from 2006 to 2011, and inspired two OVA series that totaled 26 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series, and Discotek released the series on DVD in November 2015. Teshirogi launched the Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas - Meiō Shinwa Gaiden manga in 2011, and ended it in April 2016.
Update: The manga ended its serialization in the July issue of Akita Shoten's Monthly Champion Red magazine on Friday. Source: Comic Natalie
