More About One-Punch Man
One-Punch Man debuted as a self-published webcomic in 2009. When ONE announced that the series would be on hiatus in 2010, Yusuke Murata of Eyeshield 21 read it and knew right away that he wanted to work with the writer. They collaborated on two one-shots before remaking One-Punch Man, which was serialized on the Tonari no Young Jump website in 2012. The plot revolves around a man who possesses a lethal punch capable of knocking out his opponents in a single swing.
Following One-Punch Man, ONE’s next major project was Mob Psycho 100, which lasted from 2012 to 2017. The series, written and illustrated by ONE, follows Mob, a seemingly ordinary young man who is actually a powerful psychic. He trains under a con man named Reigen Arataka in the hopes of learning to control his abilities. The third season of Mob Psycho 100 is currently airing on Crunchyroll as part of the fall anime lineup.
Azuma Kyoutarou illustrated both Tenkaichi and King of Fighters. Tenkaichi is a battle manga written by Nakamaru Yousuke in which Oda Nobunaga declares that he will hand over the country to the strongest warrior. King of Fighters is a remake of the PS4 game King of Fighters XIV. The story, published by Seven Seas Entertainment, follows a group of fighters who are all trying to figure out who the strongest warrior among them is.
One-Punch Man is available on Viz Media and Mob Psycho 100 is available on Dark Horse Comics. VERSUS will premiere on Nov. 26.
