DC Comics has announced the release dates of their upcoming manga by Mangaka Shiori Teshirogi: Batman and the Justice League. Japanese comics and American comics have always inspired each other, so this is a beautiful way to merge several communities. For example, one of the part-time inkers for Rebirth’s New-Superman, Haining, started her career out with merging the two comic styles. The results were beautiful, breathtaking, and her works are outstanding:

And this is not the only story like this out there. With the success of Batman Ninja (ニンジャバットマン Ninja Battoman), having an 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, no wonder fans are excited about a Batman manga. Batman and the Justice League Volume 1 will be available on October 17, 2018. It will have an MSRP of $12.99 and carry 208 pages. It will also read as a traditional manga, from right to left.
The story first started out in a monthly shonen magazine, named the Champion. The narrative follows a young Japanese boy who finds himself in Gotham city looking for his parents. He later finds out their death took place in a factory owned by Lex Luthor who teams up with the Joker. The young boy’s only hope is help from Batman and the League.
Look forward to this journalist covering Anime North 2018 this weekend; known as the third largest Japanese Culture and Manga convention in North America. It’s still always filled with DC fans. Proving once again Japanese and American comic art walk hand-in-hand so brilliantly. Nothing more beautiful than fans supporting fans!
