It specializes in serializations of domestic Korean and imported Japanese comics. Titles serialized in Comic Champ are collected into volumes and published under the Champ Comics imprint.

History[edit]

Comic Champ was launched as a weekly magazine on December 5, 1991, under the name Boy Champ (소년챔프). Its purpose was to compete with Seoul Cultural Publisher's IQ Jump (아이큐점프) for the adolescent and teenage boys market.[1] It had early success with its serialization of the Japanese basketball series Slam Dunk. In September 2002, the magazine changed its name to Comic Champ,[2] and in 2006 changed to a biweekly publication schedule.[3] Today it is published on the first and fifteenth days of each month.[4]
