Detective Conan Special

From Detective Conan Wiki
The cover of the first Special volume released in Japan by Shogakukan on January 28, 1997.

Detective Conan Special (名探偵コナン特別編 Meitantei Konan Tokubetsuhen?) manga volumes consist of short stories drawn by Gosho Aoyama's assistants published under Shogakukan's Ladybug Comics (てんとうむしコミックス Tentō Mushi Comikkusu?) label. The stories found in the Special volumes hold no bearing on the plot of the main comic.[1][2]


During Detective Conan's 20+ year run only two short stories from the special volumes have been adapted into TV episodes: The Kidnapping Location Case and The White Sandy Beach Murder Case. The first episode is significant as it introduces the Electronic Notebook Map gadget, however this device has not been used since this case.
