During their industry panel at Anime Expo this afternoon, Viz announced their plan to release a print edition of the Dragon Ball Super manga in spring 2017.

Viz began publishing the Dragon Ball Super manga on their website for free last week. The second chapter was posted earlier today.

While the Dragon Ball Super television series has been licensed for certain international territories, no announcement has been made for North America.

The Dragon Ball Super manga began in June 2015 as a promotional tie-in for the television series. The manga runs monthly in Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine, with the series’ thirteenth chapter most recently running in the magazine’s August 2016 issue. Illustrated by “Toyotarō” (in all likelihood, a second pen-name used by Dragon Ball AF fan manga author and illustrator “Toyble”), the Dragon Ball Super manga covered the Battle of Gods re-telling, skipped the Resurrection ‘F’ re-telling, and “charged ahead” to the Champa arc to act as further promotion for the television series. The first collected volume, covering the first nine chapters and one bonus chapter, was released this past April.
