Shonen Jump Alpha adds One Punch Man!


English-speaking fans of the absurd superhero comedy One Punch Man, by ONE and Eyeshield 21‘s Yuusuke Murata, can now read the title legally thanks to Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha‘s digital anthology (the entire comic in Japanese is free on the Young Jump website).

One Punch Man

The series, about a hero with the power to defeat any enemy with a single punch, subverts and masterfully executes some of the best tropes that one would expect from a hero story or shonen fighting manga, and the art is beautiful (except when it doesn’t want to be). Hopefully this leads to printed collections down the road (Japan has two volumes in print so far), but for now it’s good to see the title getting exposure at all.
