Detective Conan Case List

Note: The release dates below reflect the actual in-store date of the Shonen Sunday issue containing each chapter in question, not the ISSN dates on the issues' front covers. The latter, like most comic-book cover dates, are deliberately staggered weeks or even months behind the actual releases. For instance, the aforementioned Sunday issue that premiered File 001 bears the ISSN date January 19th, 1994 on its cover, but actually went on sale on January 5.

Conventionally, each issue's actual release date is calculated as two weeks ahead of the cover date, with more unconventional timings around holidays and other major events. For most of Sunday's publication history, the exact dates could only be determined though the magazines' next-issue preview pages, though they have become more widely accessible after Sunday entered digital circulation.

After the first two volumes were released in 1988, the manga was put on hiatus as Aoyama started his new manga Yaiba (1988-1993), which was followed by Detective Conan (1994-present). Since then, more chapters have been published at irregular intervals during pauses of these works, and have been collected into a third, forth and fifth volume in 1994, 2007 and 2017 respectively.


Y∀IBA, also known as Kenyuu Densetsu Yaiba, is the second manga series created by Gosho Aoyama. The story was about a young samurai and his adventures in modern day Japan. There have been numerous references to it in Detective Conan.
