About this product
- DescriptionJimmy Kudo, the son of a world-rewned mystery writer, is a high school detective who has cracked the most baffling of cases. One day while on a date with his childhood friend Rachel Moore, Jimmy observes a pair of men in black involved in some shady business. The men capture Jimmy and give him a poisous substance to rub out their witness. But instead of killing him, it turns him into a little kid! Jimmy takes on the pseudonym Conan Edogawa and continues to solve all the difficult cases that come his way. All the while, he's looking for the men in black and the mysterious organization they're with in order to find a cure for his miniature malady. When a woman dies in a swboarding accident, Conan senses foul play, but the only evidence he has is the chill up his spine. Maybe a suspicious swman contains the proof he needs! Then, on an old-fashioned cherry blossom viewing trip, Conan and Harley Hartwell stumble upon a haunted shrine. The monks tell a strange story about a room that swallows corpses. Can Conan and Harley prove the culprit isn't an ancient curse, but a very human killer?
- Author BiographyGosho Aoyama made his debut in 1992 with Chotto Matte (Wait a Minute), which won Shogakukan's prestigious Shinjin Comic Taisho (Newcomer's Award for Comics) and launched his career as a critically acclaimed, top-selling manga artist. In addition to Detective Conan, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2001, Aoyama created the popular manga Yaiba, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1992. Aoyama's manga is greatly influenced by his boyhood love for mystery, adventure and baseball, and he has cited the tales of Arsene Lupin and Sherlock Holmes and the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as some of his childhood favorites.
