Detective Conan’s author Aoyama Gosho draws Revy, a main character of the series Black Lagoon.

Black Lagoon is serialized in Sunday GX, a monthly manga magazine published by Shogakukan, which also publishes Shonen Sunday (the magazine that serializes Detective Conan). In accordance with the 10th year anniversary of Sunday GX, a special collaboration has been made between the author of Detective Conan and Black Lagoon. Aoyama’s drawing of Revy, Black Lagoon’s highly popular character, will be bundled as a poster with the October issue of Sunday GX.

Black Lagoon’s story follows a team of mercenaries known as the Lagoon Company, which smuggles goods around the Southeast Asian seas during the early 1990s. Their base of operations is located in the fictional city of Roanapur in Thailand, and they transport goods in a torpedo boat named “Black Lagoon”. (Edited from Wikipedia’s summary)
