Young Comic (ヤングコミック, Yangu Komikku) is a long-running Japanese seinen manga magazine started in 1967 as a magazine for teenage boys competing with titles like Manga Action and Big Comic. Today it targets a young adult male audience with contents tilting heavily toward sex, nudity, and gratuitous fan service. It is published monthly by Shōnen Gahōsha as a sister publication to Young King. Its circulation in 2008 was reported at 112,000 copies.[3]
