Big Comic (ビッグコミック Biggu Komikku?) is a semimonthly seinen manga magazine published since 1968-02-29 by Shogakukan in Japan.[1] It was originally launched as a monthly magazine, but switched to twice monthly on the 10th and 25th beginning in April 1968. It is paired with sister magazine Big Comic Original, going on sale in the weeks Big Comic Original doesn't. Circulation in 2008 was reported at slightly over a half-million copies.[2]

The magazine has published works by a number of well-known manga artists, including Osamu Tezuka, Shotaro Ishinomori, Sanpei Shirato, Takao Saito, Fujiko Fujio (A), Fujiko F. Fujio, and Tetsuya Chiba. Big Comic also serializes Saito's long-running Golgo 13 manga. The front cover of the magazine always features a caricature by Shūichi Higurashi of a famous individual.
