Comic Valkyrie (コミックヴァルキリー Komikku Varukirī?) is a Japanese science fiction and fantasy seinen manga magazine published by Kill Time Communication.[1] Its target readership is males between their teens and thirties. The first volume was released on July 25, 2006,[2] and ran in bimonthly volumes until it switched to monthly publication, starting with Volume 30 on May 27, 2011.[3] However, it switched back to bimonthly serialization following the release of Volume 34 on September 27, 2011.[4] The final issue (Volume 40) was published on September 27, 2012, before it switched to a free, online-only publication on its website with full volumes and chapters available on Nico Nico Douga's online book service, Nico Nico Seiga.[5][6]

At the time it was launched, it was described by Anime News Network as a "bishōjo battle magazine," reflecting the large proportion of stories featuring attractive young women engaged in adventure or combat in futuristic or young adult fantasy settings.[7][8] Many manga serialized in Comic Valkyrie are later published in bound volumes under Kill Time Communication's Valkyrie Comics imprint. The magazine was published in B5 format and sold every other month on the twenty-seventh for 650 yen.
