The manga ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure’ will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2022. The popular series so far has been made into an anime, a drama, and an illustration exhibition. While developing such activities and events, they will publish ‘JOJO magazine’, a magazine that only consists of ‘Jojo’-related content.
‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure’ is Hirohiko Araki’s representative work which started serialization in the ‘Weekly Shonen Jump’ 1-2 merger issue published in 1987. The story begins when the two boys Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brand meet, and goes beyond generations revolving around the blood relation and fate of the Joestar Family. The total number of printed copies has exceeded 100 million. Each arc from 1 to 8 has a different protagonist depending on the generation, making the whole series a unique manga.
The impressive poses, creative onomatopoeic words, and distinctive lines are supported by many creators and have fans from around the world.
In commemoration of the series’ 35th anniversary, ‘JOJO magazine’ will contain the “Jolyne and Jotaro” cover newly illustrated by Araki himself, as well as a new 71-page one-shot of ‘Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan’ with a colored cover illustration. Additionally, the magazine will also include a new novel, an anime feature that covers up to the latest work, and an interview of Issei Takahashi, the actor who plays Rohan in the spin-off ‘Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan’ series. It will be a great magazine for all Jojo fans.
The price for ‘JOJO magazine 2022 SPRING’ is scheduled to be released on March 19th 2022 for 1,650 (tax included). Both the B5-sized printed edition and the digital edition will be available simultaneously.
