is a Japanese
monthly manga magazine published by Kodansha
. Its main target is elementary school
aged boys and a new issue is released on the 15th of the month. Each
issue has 700+ pages, with 80 of them being full-color advertisements. Similar to its rival CoroCoro Comic
, it features tie-ins with game makers and toy makers but recently has less of that.
The first issue was published in October 15 1981
. Mobile Suit Gundam
was extremely popular at that time. Although the Gundam boom is centered at the higher age group, the fire slowly spread to the lower age group in the form of gunpla
and thus it was decided to mainly publish gunpla content. Many popular series were published in Comic Bom Bom like the SD Gundam
series and Medarot
series, just to name a few.
In the January 2006 issue, Comic Bom Bom underwent a renewal. It features a revamped logo and a size increase from A5 to B5. The price remains at 480yen.
Due to declining sales, the title ended at the close of 2007 and was replaced by Gekkan Shonen Rival.
