Manga — JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure — Part 1: Phantom Blood

This week Viz Media released print editions of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure for the first time. Originally only the third part, Startdust Crusaders, was available in print. While Viz has had Phantom Blood available digitally for a couple of months, for the print run they went all out and brought over the beautiful hardcover JoJonium editions. These are a bit larger in size than the usual Japanese graphic novels, but fall more in line with other hardcover printings found in the US. It also includes some color pages, comments from creator Hirohiko Araki in the back, and modern redesigns of all the old characters for the special covers.
