Comic Beam is a seinen manga magazine published by Enterbrain in Japan. It began publication in 1995 and continues to this day. Comic Beam serializes alternative manga and does not have a high sales rate, and its audience primarily consists of enthusiasts of the manga medium as art.
In The Silver Case[edit | edit source]
Comic Beam also exists in the world of The Silver Case, in which it promotes the idol Sayaka Baian. Akira finds an issue of Comic Beam in case#0:lunatics with a picture of Sayaka on the front; its presence serves as a clue to to one of the password locks in the Cauliflower building. The same issue is shown again in case#4:kamuidrome in the Sayaka Baian sequence.
In the 2016 version of the game, there is another issue of Comic Beam on the roof of the building. This time, it is a real issue, one which anachronistically features Kurayami Dance on the cover. Collecting both issues will earn the player an achievement.
