One Piece (#4)
The superpowered pirate showdown continues, with Monkey D. Luffy's rubbery limbs tested to their limit against the fiendish Captain Buggy's Chop-Chop powers! Worse, Captain Buggy reveals an unexpected connection between himself and LuffyÃ�Â s long-lost hero, Captain "Red-Haired" Shanks! Only when the dust has cleared does Luffy's quest to become King of the Pirates truly begin. To learn the route to the Grand Line, where the legendary treasure called the One Piece is hidden, Luffy and his tiny crew must endure the Trial of the Forest on a remote jungle island. And waiting over the seas is the unpredictable Captain Usopp, who claims to be a deadly pirate captain... but Usopp says a lot of things. A semi-professional liar, Usopp spells endless headaches for Luffy's crew - but he may be their only ally against the very real dangers threatening his little town.
Eiichiro Oda debuted in WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP in 1997 as a comic creator and artist with ONE PIECE. One of the most popular comic artists in Japan today, Oda started out by winning the Hop Step Award (a monthly award given by Jump for amateur artists) as well as the esteemed Tezuka Award. His art style is reminiscent of Akira Toriyama, Sergio Aragones, and the movie Yellow Submarine.
