Weekly Shōnen Big Comic (週刊少年ビッグコミック Shūkan Shōnen Biggu Komikku?) was a bi-weekly manga magazine published by Shogakukan in Japan from 1979 to 1987. From 1976 to 1979, the magazine was titled Manga-kun (マンガくん?) before being renamed Shōnen Big Comics in 1979.

In 1987, the magazine changed format and was renamed Weekly Young Sunday. The magazine is aimed at teens and a generally older audience than another of Shogakukan's manga magazines, Weekly Shōnen Sunday.

Several of the manga series appearing in Weekly Shōnen Big Comic have been adapted into one or more anime TV or OVA series, including Esper Mami, Area 88, and Miyuki.
