In a one shot that celebrates 22 years of One Piece, Boichi redraws the fight between Mihawk and Zoro. Boichi is the pen name of Mujik Park. He is best known for the current manga series, Dr. Stone. Chapter 51, titled “Roronoa Zoro Falls Into the Sea.” Boichi recreates the chapter 51 and 52 page by page. If you aren’t familiar with Boichi’s art it’s spectacular.
The fight between Zoro and Mihawk occurred during the Krieg Pirates‘ siege on the Baratie. Zoro challenges Mihawk to a duel. Zoro is easily defeated, but Mihawk gains respect for him. Mihawk allows him to live and tells him to get stronger for when they fight again. There are some changes from the original, after Zoro is defeated Luffy attacks Mihawk, but doesn’t land a hit. Some scenes are omitted. Regardless, it’s great to see this chapter drawn by such a talented mangaka. Hopefully, we will get some more.
