This upload contains scans of the official Raijin Comics release of Fist Of The North Star (Master Edition) from the early 2000’s.

For those unaware, in the early 2000’s, before Viz released their shonen jump magazine in North America, there was another manga magazine publishing manga in North America called Raijin Comics. Raijin was a magazine published by Gutsoon! Entertainment and published series such as City Hunter, Fist of the Blue Sky, Baki, and Slam Dunk, among others. This publisher was originally spun off from the Japanese publisher coamix which itself was formed by the old school shonen jump legends tetsuo hara (fist of the north star) and tsukasa hojo (city hunter). 

Raijin Comics ran for 47 issues before becoming defunct. This was scanned by the Raijin Comics Preservation Squad and we are trying to scan and preserve as much of Raijin/Gutsoon’s manga releases in North America as we can.

199X, nuclear war has ravaged the planet. From the ashes, gangs have risen to take all the power from world governments. Justice has ceased to exist in this now lawless world. From the sands of a desert, a man appears. His name is Kenshiro, and he is the sucessor to the most powerful martial art in the world, Hokuto Shinken. This art attacks the foes insides, and makes them explode internally and die in often brutal ways. Kenshiro’s goal is to kill the man who kidnapped his fiance, Yuria. A man that he once called a friend, but who betrayed him and left him for dead. Along the way, he makes friends and enemies alike, while protecting those who cannot protect themselves.
