The legendary “manga” comic “Ashita no Joe” (“Tomorrow’s Joe”), that was a smash hit in the late 1960s and early 1970s, will be reprinted starting next month in a major weekly magazine.

Kodansha Ltd. will start to reprint most episodes of the comic in its weekly Shukan Gendai from the issue hitting the market March 2 through the yearend. It is rare for a major weekly to reprint a legendary manga comic.
