A Shonen Manga All-Star Art Book for JoJo’s Year 25!
It happens to be the 25th year of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure just in case you couldn’t tell it was a special time for it considering all the good news that’s been going on. And the goodies keep coming. Ultra Jump, the same company that brought you Shonen Jump, has released an artbook containing sketches from Jump artists abound.

“The first art collection since Jojo A-Go!Go! 12 years ago

It of course has a collection of various beautiful illustrations,

An Araki Hirohiko history book and

All the artists, authors, and fans have stepped up to show their appreciation, love, and respect for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and Hirohiko Araki. And at the bottom we got some bonus preview art for the upcoming JoJo’s anime.
It’s a great year to be a JoJo’s fan.
