Issue #48 of Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits will be the 2,000th issue of the manga magazine overall. And to celebrate that milestone, they will be releasing a special poster from 37 of the magazine’s mangaka. They even released a video which shows these 37 mangaka working on that poster:
As the video shows, the poster itself is hand-drawn. The mangaka participating in its creation includes Naoki Urasawa, Masami Yuuki, Akiko Higashimura, and Inio Asano. Among the manga featured in the huge collaboration poster are Shohei Manabe’s Ushijima the Loan Shark and Masaharu Noritsuke’s Kekkon Afro Tanaka.
-- Advertisment --
15 East Japan Railway Company train stations will be showing off versions of the posters in celebration of the 2,000th issue. Each station will display individual versions of the poster’s artworks. They also displayed it at JR Shinagawa Station in Tokyo as well.
