Ahoy ye land-lubbin’ manga fans! SJ Alpha is hosting the most epic fan meet-up of the year at San Diego Comic-Con! Find our One Piece themed JUMP Truck by the beautiful pier to enjoy free frozen treats (while supplies last) and a whole bunch of fun activities!
No SDCC pass?! No worries! Since it’s an outside event, you don’t have to be a Comic-Con attendee to attend the SJ Fan Meet-Up. Plus the first hundred SJ Alpha Members to show up at the JUMP Truck will receive a special gift bag!
So join our crew! Put on your best SHONEN JUMP cosplay and come hang out with the SJ Alpha editors and other SJ fans in San Diego!

San Diego Comic-Con Event Guide
Take a Picture with 3D LUFFY!
Meet our special guest, Monkey D. Luffy...in 3D! At the SJ Fan Meet-Up and at the VIZ Booth (Booth #2813), there will be a photo op with the rubbery SHONEN JUMP superstar!
SJ Alpha Members Only!
To get the special SJ Alpha gift bag, you’ll need your SJ Alpha Members-Only badge ribbon. If you’re a current member, you’ll receive an email from us with a special code.

SJ Alpha Panel!
7/14 Saturday Noon @ Room 7AB
This year’s panel’s gonna get SERIOUS! We’re inviting Yoshihisa Heishi (Editor-in-Chief of Weekly Shonen Jump, founding editor of Yu-Gi-Oh!), Kouji Yoshida (editor of Death Note), and Kengo Monji (editor of Bakuman) as special guests. We’ll have a heated Q&A showdown between Japanese and American editors—a veritable crossfire of expert opinions and a behind-the-scenes look into the manga world.
Plus! Stay tuned for the big announcements at our panel or on our Twitter @shonenjump.
The SJ Alpha panel is subject to change without notice.
