Weekly Comic Bunch (週刊コミックバンチ Shūkan Komikku Banchi?) is a seinen manga anthology published weekly in Japan by Coamix and Shinchosha since 2001. The tankōbon (collected volumes) edition of their titles are published under the Bunch Comics imprint.
In 2000, Nobuhiko Horie, former editor-in-chief of Weekly Shōnen Jump, along with former Jump authors who worked under Horie such as Tetsuo Hara and Tsukasa Hojo, founded the manga production company Coamix with Shinchōsha acting as their business partner. The first issue of Coamix's Comic Bunch was published with the cover date of May 15, 2001. Prior to the publication of the actual first issue, Coamix released a free preview issue featuring artworks and interviews with various artists. The magazine was originally published every Tuesday, but was changed to every Sunday from 2002 and onward.
On June 25, 2010, Coamix announced that they will cease publication of Comic Bunch, with the August 27 issue being the final one. However, Coamix plans to launch a new manga anthology within the year, while Shinchosha plans to relaunch the Comic Bunch brand sometime during fall.
