The first volume of Stardust Crusaders introduced us to the concept of Stands, spiritual powers which can do more than the Ripples of the past, our heroes, from Clint Eastwood inspired Jotaro to the fire loving tarot card reader Avdol, and the overall objective of reaching Dio in Egypt to save Holly, and the world whilst they are at it. With all the pieces in place, we can now enjoy what the series is really all about, Stands, glorious Stands.  Continue reading

It’s taken over thirty years for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure to see a true release in the UK. The third part ‘Stardust Crusaders’ took the trip over, but that was all.

Thanks to a recent resurgence in the franchise, largely thanks to the anime series, we’re getting more Jojo than ever before!  Continue reading
