Another stellar cover by the immensely talented Horikoshi Sensei. The world of anime and manga fandom is ablaze with the news of Horikoshi Sensei coming to San Diego Comic-Con. And even though I am a "professional," I'm freaking out just as much as everybody else. In honor of this tremendous occasion, we've put together a fun What's Your Quirk contest and it starts today! Click here for more info!

My Hero Academia
by Kohei Horikoshi

Endeavor is the now the number one hero, but you know what they say--it's lonely at the top. And it doesn't help that newcomer Hawks is upstaging him and getting all the glory. Endeavor's not the type to seek out public approval, but he is human. Can he take the heat of being number one, but also kind of number two?

My Hero Academia

The Promised Neverland
story by Kaiu Shirai, art by Posuka Demizu

Leuvis is one helluva demon! A demon's demon if you will. His companions were outsmarted, outgunned and out of luck as they all bit the dust, but he's still standing. And taking on all the kids with their traps and everything in stride. Despite the kids' forces getting a boost from the Nameless Geezer and Ray, they're still outmatched. Can Emma come up with a plan clever enough to take down the leader?

Senku's come up with a lot of crazy plans, but this new one may be the craziest yet--and that's saying something! I don't want to spoil the surprise by mentioning anything about his plan, but I will give you one hint: Miley Cyrus. Enjoy!

We Never Learn
by Taishi Tsutsui

Yay! A multi-chapter mini-arc! The stand-alone chapters are always a lot of fun, but it's neat to get into a bit of longer form storytelling. Especially a story arc that involves all the characters putting on frilly dresses and a big show! And that's exactly what happens in this chapter! But will their production go off without a hitch? Find out! 

We Never Learn

Robot x Laserbeam
by Tadatoshi Fujimaki

One-Punch Man
story by ONE, art by Yusuke Murata 

Bow down before the glory of this art! Tremble before the weight of this ponderous chapter! Reel from the pure destructive power of the mind-obliterating battle within! This is manga at it's finest! What you will witness is someone pushing the boundaries of the art form beyond mortal comprehension! And some super funny stuff happens too!
