According to the report, One Piece will be honored by a host of artists in light of this big chapter. All of the currently serialized artists in the magazine will draw artwork for One Piece, and much of it will be included in these issue covers. And to sweeten the deal, both issues featuring One Piece covers will contain half of a poster that combine to make the "biggest poster in Jump's history."

Clearly, these issues will be a big deal for fans as One Piece is about to go where few series have. It is not easy task to hit 1,000 chapters, but creator Eiichiro Oda has made it happen. The artist has spent decades of their live dedicated to the Straw Hats, and this momentous chapter is surely one to celebrate whether you like Luffy or not.
