Raijin Comics

Raijin Comics

"RAIJIN COMICS" was a manga anthology published in North America by the now-defunct Gutsoon! Entertainment and largely backed by the Sega Corporation at its inception. The collected volumes of "Raijin Comics" titles were published under the "Raijin Graphic Novels" imprint.

The comics were aimed at an older audience. The magazine's first issue was published with the cover date of December 8, 2002. "Raijin Comics" was initially a weekly publication, but it later became a monthly magazine on issue #37 (the October 2003 issue).

"Raijin Comics"' failure to break in the U.S. market has been attributed to competition (indirect or otherwise) with the North American version of "Shonen Jump", which launched at the same time as "Raijin Comics", although both magazines were aimed at different audiences.

On May 5, 2005, Raijin lost control of the raijincomics.com domain name to domain squatters; the corporate website, [http://www.gutsoon.com/ gutsoon.com] remains currently in operation but has not been updated since June 2004.
