Author Satoshi Miyakawa, Kai Kitagō of Tiramisu to launch manga on June 22
The official website of Kodansha’s Evening magazine announced on Thursday that Satoshi Miyakawa (Tiramisu) and Kai Kitagō will launch a new manga starring the DC Comics character Superman, titled Superman vs. Meshi: Superman no Hitori Meshi (Superman vs. Food : Superman Dining Alone), in this 14th issue of Evening Magazine on June 22. The manga will also serialize on Kodansha’s Comic Days website. Miyakawa wrote the story, while Kitago was in charge of the artist.
The story will revolve around the daily pastime of the strongest man on Earth, who can hear his stomach growl across Japan at lunchtime with his superhuman hearing.
The title is an obvious nod to Masayuki Kusumi and manga artist Solitary Gourmet (Kodoku no Gourmet), following a lone salesman named Goro Inagashira as he travels around Japan and finds local dishes. on street corners. The manga has inspired an ongoing live-action series with eight seasons and a pure anime, and Fanfare and Ponent Mon are planning to publish the manga in English.
The Superman vs Meshi: Superman no Hitori Meshi manga is part of the second phase of DC Comics’ collaboration with Kodansha, which includes the debut of Batman Justice Buster by Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi (Ultraman, Linebarrels of Iron) in Morning magazine last December.
The first phase of the partnership also spawned Wanope Joker (Joker: The One-Man Operation), which premiered in the Morning on January 7 earlier this year. Miyakawa also wrote the story for the manga, with the artist being Keisuke Gotō.
