Issue 9 is set to release on January 29, so if reports are to be believed, Hunter x Hunter will be hitting the shelves again in 2 months.
The current hiatus, which was announced in August, was marked by an announcement in September within Weekly Shonen Jump that Hunter x Hunter creator and artist Yoshihiro Togashi would be returning to work on the manga within the year. Togashi, who suffers from back pain, often puts the series on hiatus to recover. When the hiatus first began, Togashi confirmed that he would resume working on the manga before the end of the year.
