Conan wakes up in the hospital, the victim of a gunshot wound…and things just go downhill from there. Has Rachel finally figured out that Conan and Jimmy Kudo are one in the same?
But the drama really builds when a real-life murder interrupts Rachel's school play...and a familiar teenage boy steps out of the wings to tackle the case. It's not a dream! Not a flashback! Not an imaginary story! Jimmy Kudo is back!
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.
