SHONEN JUMP FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2016 SAMPLER

Check out the superhero action of two smash hit titles from VIZ Media’s Shonen Jump imprint—ONE-PUNCH MAN and MY HERO ACADEMIA.

Action fans can sample an excerpt from the smash hit series about an unlikely superhero in ONE-PUNCH MAN. Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Volume 6 of the series will be released on May 3rd!

In MY HERO ACADEMIA, imagine what the world would be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy, of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless? Catch the debut of Volume 4 on May 3rd!
