Volume 66 is titled "The Path Towards the Sun".
Cover and Volume Illustration[edit | edit source]
In the colored cover, the background is yellow and the title logo is printed in a clear color, burnt gold, and red. The author's name is in dark red.
The front cover features Jinbe and Luffy sitting back to back, with Shirahoshi holding her pinky finger up behind them. Smoker and Tashigi are on the left, while Tamago and Pekoms are on the right. There are bubbles and corals in the background, and a large rainbow behind the One Piece logo.
On the spine, the skull mark is light green, and Luffy and Tamago are featured.
For the volume illustration on page 3, an excited Luffy is in the air with his legs crossed. He wears a typical traveler's outfit, and wears a crown and some jewelry on top of his straw hat. There is what seems to be a rolled-up map and a beaded necklace in his left hand, and a handgun hangs from the small traveling bag he carries. Another beaded necklace is also sticking out from his vest pocket.
