Case Closed Vol. 42: The Woman in Black

Case Closed Volume 42

The Woman in Black
In their most monstrous case yet, Conan and his friends dress up as famous monsters for a murder mystery game set on a creaky ghost ship. It’s an evening of spooky fun—until a real murder interrupts the game. Then it’s up to Jimmy Kudo to figure out which rubber mask hides the face of a killer! But there’s more than one monster on the loose. Faced with evidence that the Men in Black have discovered their real identities, Conan and Anita have only one hope: find the deadly assassin Vermouth before she finds them. Can they unmask the Syndicate’s top mistress of disguise?

The Game’s Afoot

Case Closed Vol. 43

When Conan and Harley join forces to win a crime-solving competition, it’s not all fun and games. The head of a toy company has been murdered, and the only clue is a cryptic message spelled out in wooden blocks. Then the detectives race to find a terrorist at a baseball championship—and with a bomb planted somewhere in the stadium, they can’t afford to strike out! Meanwhile, Anita makes a difficult choice. Given the opportunity to enter the Witness Protection Program, will she disappear from Conan’s life forever?

Are you trying to read this comic in the wrong direction?

...Gotcha! In keeping with the original Japanese format, manga are meant to be read from right to left, starting in the upper-right corner.

Unlike English, which is read from left to right, Japanese is read from right to left, meaning that action, sound effects, and word-balloon order are completely reversed... something which can make readers unfamiliar with Japanese feel pretty backwards themselves. For this reason, manga or Japanese comics published in the U.S. in English have sometimes been published "flopped" - that is, printed in exact reverse order, as though seen from the other side of a mirror.

By flopping pages, U.S. publishers can avoid confusing readers, but the compromise is not without its downside. For one thing, a character in a flopped manga series who once wore in the original Japanese version a T-shirt emblazoned with "MAY" (as in "the merry month of") now wears one which reads "YAM"! Additionally, many manga creators in Japan are themselves unhappy with this process, as some feel the mirror-imaging of their art skews their original intentions.

We are proud to bring you manga presented in the original unflopped format. For now, though, click to the left and let the adventure begin...!
