Big Comic is a "seinen"-magazine. This means its target audience is young men ranging from 16 to 40 years. It is one of the oldest seinen magazines and one of the most successful as well. It sells around 1,5 million copies biweekly. It is being published by Shougakukan
Just as Shounen Jump has sprouted a whole range of magazines, Big Comic is the father of a wide family, each targeted at a slightly other part of the young male public. Big Comic Spirits, Big Comic Superior, Big Comic Gold, Big Comic Original.
