The cover of the first volume released in Japan by Shogakukan on June 18, 1994.

The manga was first serialized in the fifth issue of Shōnen Sunday in 1994, written and drawn by Gosho Aoyama, and has appeared there since. The first tankoubon was also published by Shogakukan in 1994; it has spanned 74 volumes[1] and continues today. The manga has been highly popular in Japan; the tankoubon has received multiple first places in bestselling lists.[2]

Viz Media publishes Case Closed manga in the United States and Canada while Gollancz published the manga in the United Kingdom using Viz Media's English translation. However, the company stopped after 15 volumes, and now Viz handles UK distribution.[3] Other than the adaption of character names used in the anime version, there is no significant change between the English translations and the Japanese versions. Currently, there are 41 known English books in stores, as of January 12th, 2012.[4]
