A Monochrome Opening (白黒の序盤 Monokuro no Ōpuningu) is the 1103rd chapter of the manga of Detective Conan. It was written by Gosho Aoyama, drawn by him and his assistants and first released in Shōnen Sunday #1/2023 on November 30, 2022 and will presumably be reprinted as part of Volume 104.
- The front pages of Shonen Sunday #1-2023 show Conan holding white chess rook and a black pawn, with Kanenori Wakita behind and Hyoue Kuroda and Rumi Wakasa in the back. On the top of the page can be seen Conan holding a bouquet.
- On the floor near Kishitani's body is a copy of the Shonen Sunday magazine. It is titled Shonen Yonday (ヨンデー, Yondē) instead of Sunday (サンデー, Sandē).
- The chess tournamen takes place at West Topia (西トピア Nishi Topia), based on the real Hokutopia (北とぴあ, the "Hoku" means north and "Nishi" means west) building in the Kita Ward of Tokyo. The National Chess Tournaments take place each year at Hokutopia.
