Atsushi Ookkubo’s Soul Eater manga has been published by Square Enix’s Monthly Shounen Gangan magazine since 2003. It is now probably one of the most famous shounen stories as well as the most popular one that is an own project (the mangaka has also worked on Get Backers, but only as a secondary creator).
By clicking on the image, you can see the full version of the cover of the August issue of the magazine.
The artwork is created by Ookubo-sensei himself and is honouring Maka Albarn – one of the most popular characters in the story and the wielder of the title character Soul Eater Evans.
I hope you can still gather some finances and order this issue of the Gangan mag when it comes out!
