About the Author

Gosho Aoyama made his debut in 1992 with Chotto Matte (Wait a Minute), which won Shogakukan's prestigious Shinjin Comic Taisho (Newcomer's Award for Comics) and launched his career as a critically acclaimed, top-selling manga artist. In addition to Detective Conan, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2001, Aoyama created the popular manga Yaiba, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1992. Aoyama's manga is greatly influenced by his boyhood love for mystery, adventure and baseball, and he has cited the tales of Arsene Lupin and Sherlock Holmes and the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as some of his childhood favorites."

Format: Paperback
Of course there is a lot of comedy and a lot of romance and back story but the part that I find really interesting are the cases. This is about 16/17 year old Jimmy Kudo one of the greatest detectives you can think of. You can not beleive the cases he can solve! After witnessing a crime these men in black give him a poison that should kill him but it shrinks his body into that of a 6 year old. Until he can find the men in black that shrunk him, he (taking on the alias of "Conan" since if the men find out his real idenity they will kill him and the ones around him,) solves these ridiculusly hard cases. If Sherlock Holmes was alive he would struggle to solve them! Conan is put under the care of Jimmy's wannabe girlfriend and her 'stupid', 'not perceptive' detective father and Conan/Jimmy solves the cases for him. In the first volume the cases he solves are hard but relativly simple, but later on they have these cases that even if the pulprit walked around with a sign saying he did it, you couldn't sove them. One word, Amazing!

Case Closed

Case Closed, by Gosho Aoyama, is the book in the magna series. The show was great and the book is even better. The book is full of suspense. You can solve the case with Conan Edagawa (main character) and get confused. All while by his side. There is plenty of times where you solved the case until another suspect shows up or a new piece of evidence reveals itself. The book is also filled with action. Conan is always getting attacked when he gets close to cracking a case. This book also has an amazing story line and some of the most amazing plot twist I have ever read.

You will fall in love with Conan as you find out how he solves the most unbelievable cases known to man. These cases range from child's play, to master mind, and finally to unsolvable. Even still Conan some how manages to solve everyone of them no matter how long it takes. Conan is like any other ordinary teenager. He has his share of girl problems, as well as friend

problems. The only difference is that he is incredibly smart for a 9 year old. You will find out why he is so smart when you buy this book. This book is I think incredibly cheap for what for what you get to read. If you are a fan of the show you will definitely be a fan of the book. Must by for any novel lover old and young.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Yay for Music! on May 3, 2006
Format: Paperback
What happens when you mix a pre-school body with a high schooler's mind? A really weird person (really close), nope! A super ace detective who has to hide his talents because he's staying at his best friend from High School's house? Yes.

When High School detective and prodigy, Jimmy Kudo involves himself too far into a mystery of two men wearing black, he ends up being turned into a tiny preschooler with a high schooler's mind. To cover up his flaw and to keep his friends safe, Jimmy must pretend to be the preschooler he turned into and stay at his best friend, Rachel's house under the name "Conan Edogawa".

Throughout the series, the hilarity of Jimmy's failed attempts to conceal his high school self rise as do Rachel's suspicions about Conan's (Jimmy's) similarities to Jimmy. In addition to that problem, Jimmy can't keep his head out of a mystery even as a little kid, bringing him into deeper trouble with Rachel's father, Detective Richard Moore.

The bloody assasinations, stabbings, head chopping, impaling, poisoning, dismemberment, drownings, and more show up to block Jimmy's way to finding the cure that will return him to normal, in the meantime, Conan (Jimmy) has to keep Rachel from worrying about his other self, and keep her from knowing the truth of how he became small.

This is an excellent series for all manga fans or mystery fans, it's funny, suspenseful, (and gory for anyone with action issues. I highly reccomend anyone to read this book and the rest of the series if they want action, jokes, mystery, a little bit of love and wit.

The Best Mystery Manga ever!

By Sesho on September 30, 2006
Format: Paperback
Jimmy Kudo tries his best to be like his idol Sherlock Holmes by helping the authorities solve baffling crimes even though he's just a junior at Teitan High School. His mind has been trained by reading an extensive library of detective novels, which include those written by his own father, who along with his mother, work in the United States, leaving Jimmy to fend for himself. He might have gotten involved in one case too many as he is knocked unconscious while witnessing a blackmail payoff. Instead of killing him outright for what he's seen, a mysterious man in black slips him an experimental untraceable poison and leaves Jimmy for dead. But instead of bringing about his death, the poison transforms his body into that of a 6-year-old boy! Of course noone believes that he is Jimmy Kudo, except Dr. Agasa, a mad scientist that happens to live next door. Agasa advises the boy to keep his identity secret because if the guys that poisoned him find out he is still alive, they'll just come after him. Better to let them think he's dead. Taking the name Conan Edogawa, Jimmy must keep his secret even from the girl that loves him, Rachel Moore, even as he moves in with her and her father, who is a sorry private detective. Conan will try to use the resources in Richard Moore's office to track down those who gave him the poison and hopefully get his body back to its normal size. Along the way, he will help Rachel and her dad solve cases while at the same time never revealing his real identity.

Volume 1 of Case Closed is a promising read that is nothing if not entertaining. The art is more influenced by Disney than most manga I've read and gives you a feeling of anthropomorphized animals like Donald Duck or Goofy.
