Furthermore, chapters of the Black Clover series are also being collected into a graphic novel 「単行本 tankōbon」 format, which contains between 8-10 chapters. One of the major differences between the magazine version and the graphic novel version is the paper quality where the latter uses a much higher paper quality. The graphic novel version sometimes offers a revision over mistakes that were made on the original publication and improvement over the art in general. Additionally, the graphic novel also included extra chapters or characters profile that was not published in the magazine.
The volumes are published by Shueisha Inc. 「株式会社集英社 Kabushiki Gaisha Shūeisha」 under the Jump Comics 「ジャンプコミックス Janpu Komikkusu」 imprint. As of May 2, 2018, the Black Clover series has published 16 volumes.
The series has also been licensed for an English language release by VIZ Media on the company’s digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine starting from April 6th, 2015. The move was done after previewing the first 3 chapters of the series at the same time as the series’ debut in Japan as part of the digital magazine’s Jump Start campaign. The series was chosen by the English edition’s editors out of the four new series that were coming out during that serialization round.
