Following a recent appearance on the TV game show Jeopardy and the imminent return of the manga by creator Hirohiko Araki, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure rides high. While it’s not yet known if there will be another season of the anime adaptation following the end of the Stone Ocean, Joestar fans are in luck, as an extremely rare art book will be making a comeback later this year. With Araki’s art continuing to be an important part of the franchise’s success, many Stand fans may want to get their hands on this book.
The final season of the anime adaptation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Stone Ocean, ended in a very unique way, as the battle between Jolyne Cujoh and Pucci resulted in reality itself changing forever in the story of the anime franchise. With the nefarious priest succeeding in killing the female Joestar and her friends, the universe rested on the shoulders of the young Emporio, who was able to kill Pucci with a last-minute rescue. By forging an entirely new reality that introduced fans to “Irene Joestar,” the universe said events now occurred that had never been influenced by Pucci to begin with, making for a completely different story.

Twitter Outlet Catsuke spread word that the three-volume book set, “JoJo A Go-Go,” would be released in April this year, showcasing more of creator Hirohiko Arakai’s work from his masterpiece of a manga series, as the mangaka plans to is to return via next month’s The JoJo Lands:

While next month’s big comeback for the manga series has given us our first look at the next Joestar who will take the reins of the series, there are still plenty of mysteries left to be answered when it comes to The JoJo Lands. With Araki confirming that the new hero would be related to Joseph Joestar, albeit the iteration of Joestar living in the same reality as Steel Ball Run and JoJolion, the protagonist will have some serious shoes to fill when it comes to the Stand fights of the anime’s past.
Will you pick up these art books when they come in next month? Feel free to let us know in the comments or call me directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk about all things comics, anime and the world of the Joestars.
