DUBAI: Attack on Titan was certified by the Guinness World Records for the “largest comic book ever published,” on Tuesday.
The large-scale print issues of the manga are exactly one meter tall and 70 cm wide, making it almost seven times the size of a traditional Japanese comic book.

The large book weighs almost 13.7 kilograms. Only 100 copies per chapter of the manga were sold, as the extreme print issue was limited edition. The first two chapters were sold within minutes of their launch.
Japanese publishing company Kodansha is offering fans the chance to apply to purchase a copy of the large-scale Attack on Titan manga on their website. The comic is available for ¥165,000 JPY (or $1,540 USD).
